It is easy to get caught up in enjoying the three-day Memorial Day weekend and celebrating the beginning of summer. However, I think it is important to remember why this day was set aside: to remember those who died while serving our country and to honor those who have been in the military. I wanted to share some compelling photos from G Dhiman Photography. Thanks to all those who serve in our military.
From Gagan: “I am in the U.S Army, and I was deployed last year to Afghanistan for 9 months. These photos were taken in Afghanistan, and these photos are of real heroes who sacrifice so much to serve their country and its citizens. The dog in the photograph is a Military Working Dog aka MWR. These dogs have a very important job and are treated and respected just like a soldier. Each dog has one handler and sleeps with the soldier to who it is assigned to. “
You can see more of Gagan’s photos from his Afghanistan deployment on his blog.

What an incredible perspective of the “working dog.” I especially love the top photo with the helicopter in the background. I am so grateful to the men, women, and dogs who protect our freedom!
I am so proud of each an everyone of you. Your what makes are Country my grandfather was in World war 1 he came back to the states with his German Shepherd, my dad was a Marines. I don’t think he had a war dog, I wish he did then the dog could guard him to. I’m 70 now but if I were younger I would be right by your side. God keep all of you safe so you can come back to your family.
