    By CNN National Security Producer Jennifer Rizzo

    When an insurgent rocket attack badly injured Cpl. Dustin Lee while he was on patrol in Iraq, his shrapnel-impaled partner, Lex, picked himself up to lie over Lee - an effort to protect him.

    "He knew Dustin was injured," said Lee's mom, Rachel. Lex was his bomb-sniffing dog.

    Lee didn't survive his injuries, but Lex did - and became a part of the Lee family when Rachel adopted him.

    "When Dustin was killed, one of the first things I asked about was Lex, because of their camaraderie. They depended on each other"

    These dogs deserve better. They aren't just "surplus" when they are retired. :mad:
    May the FORCE be with you!

    These dogs are heroes and should be treated as such.

    In reading the comments it would appear that some people have no idea how high vet bills can be.

    I wonder if the people who object to the idea of using surplus resources would feel the same way if we were talking about Army horses.
