Military Dog Honored For Heroics In Afghanistan

A Belgian Malinois was recognized by an Air Force unit recently for her heroics in Afghanistan, becoming the first canine to receive an honor from the 341st Training Squadron.
The 341st is the organization that trains dogs for the military, and the fact that Layka is the first to be honored speaks to the magnitude of the award.
Layka, a 3-year-old, was working with a U.S. Special Forces unit in Afghanistan this summer when she was dispatched to inspect a building for explosives and search for enemy combatants.
