A nice story out of the recent “Salute Our Troops” event in Las Vegas. Take a few minutes out of your day to learn about Drak and his handler.
Marine Sgt. Kenneth Fischer never heard the blast. One second he was on patrol with his drug-sniffing dog, and the next he found himself down on his chest, with most of his right calf gone and a large, V-shaped piece of shrapnel under his vest and inside his right shoulder. Drak, his Belgian Malinois, was on the ground, too, just above Kenneth’s head.
