Off the battlefield, soldiers are people like the rest of us and love their animal companions.

Many soldiers have pets, and when they leave for a deployment that may be a year or longer they need to either find a foster or a permanent home for their pets. Because they often move frequently from base to base, it’s not always easy to strike up a friendship with a neighbor or friend or family member who can offer to take them temporarily or permanently.

On the other hand, many soldiers rescue animals from war zones and send them stateside when and however they can, but may not arrive at the same time.

The least we can do for those who put themselves in danger for our country is take good care of the animal companions they must leave behind or send forward. Here are two current situations.
