Nan Siders, your son and IDD Cane are true heroes! Blessed you and them for your sacrifices!
They are true heroes! They are American Officers!
I'm so sorry for your loss Ma'am. RIP Cpl Billy Crouse and IDD Cane xxx
I'm so sorry for your loss. If there is any consolation for you, your son did an honorable tour of duty to give us the freedom we currently have and at least if he had to die, he will not be alone. I'm sure they are both at the side of Jesus Christ. My prayers are with you and your family. I know what it is like to lose family members at war, however, I don't know what it is like to lose a son or daughter. God Bless You.
I can't imagine your pain! Our country is indebted to your son and companion forever! You and your son gave the ultimate for our freedom. Thank you and our hearts and prayers are with you, your son and Cane.
I was on a plane in Texas. A military dog had a seat beside me. The plane would not let the dog sit on the seat the military had purchased for the dog. The dog wasn't allowed on the floor so the big K9 had to sit on the soldiers lap. He was a military dog and it was bothersome to see him squished during his flight to the base.
Remember all of our TROOPS! For without them and God we would have NOTHING!
You are a disgrace to the human race to think that our military working dogs should stay behind because they are not like you. They deserve to live and return to the United States just as much as our human soldiers. Please bring them home too.
THANK GOD FOR OUR (Canines) They Are A VERY IMPORTANT & Loved Part Of OUR LIVES & Very Helpful To OUR MILITARY.
I believe a Military Woking Dog should be able to sent back to the USA to help where they are needed.The Military should have to leave them anywhere to take care of themselves.. It is inhumane. I believe there are laws protecting animals in America. Therefore, there should be laws to protect the K-9 Dogs that protected our Armed Force members.....
My husabnd is an k9 handler, and his dog has become part of our family! These dogs are amazing and are just as much as heros and the handlers that work with them! They feel, love, fear, and show bravery. K9's can even get PTSD just like their handlers. My husbands old unit had 3 dogs that had severe PTSD, one of the dogs would pee themselves at loud noises and cower! Equitment doesn't have feelings and sure doesn't get PTSD! SO personally I feel your an idoit sen. Mc Cain
I agree with this petition. Senator McCain, I am real disapointed in you. You have long been a hero of mine. The Dogs will always be heroes to me. They, as the human troops, deserve every bit of respect that we can give them.
they are NOT equipment!
Although they didn't ask to go to war, they didn't volunteer to go to war, yet they were trained and sent to war. They have feelings, they fought alongside their commrades and saved many lives and still you think they are 'equipment'? Can equipment be trained, follow orders, sleep, eat, drink, etc? Of course not! So how do you still think canine soldiers are equipment. It's time t get MWD's and hopefully CWD's classified as military personnel and given benefits deserving of our...

As a military man yourself and POW please re consider your position and votefor a fellow comrade in arms.
