It’s clear this band of brothers is in it together until the end.

Army Specialist Andrew Brown and his canine sidekick Rocky were injured together recently during operations in Afghanistan. The partners, who were taken out by an IED (improvised explosive device) while on duty “searching for a structure in support of ongoing duty,” are both doing well at this time thankfully, and sure look happy to have been in each other’s company while they were both recuperating.

A photo of the service members being treated side by side in the same room was posted to the 89th Military Police Brigade’s police page, and has since gone viral reaching almost 8,000 shares, proving that loyalty will always be a major tenant of the armed forces.

Check out a photo of adorable Rocky with his purple heart on the next page, and be sure to SHARE!

Rocky’s Little Heart

Rocky received a purple heart before heading back to Fort Hood over the next couple weeks for a job well done. The heart is given out to those who were either wounded or killed while in service, so as you can see, this pup is very deserving of his medal. Let’s hope he gets a few bacon-bites in the process. Good boy, Rocky!

Let’s pray for the fast recovery of these two brave members of the armed forces.

Our Military Dogs Deserve More Recognition

As of 2011 600 U.S. military dogs were actively participating in combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan, the most common breed for these types of operations being the German Shepherd.
