WAR DOG Hangs Tough From a Helicopter. No Big DealS

This picture is badass. Here you see Navy SEALs demonstrating an exercise called Special Patrol Insertion/Extraction (SPIE) at Virginia Beach. SPIE is what happens when a patrol needs to be extracted from an area where a helicopter can't land. Neat. And routine. But oh wait, is that, pray tell, a WAR DOG? Why yes, yes it is one of those tongue wagging, barking balls of fur that will lick your face right after they aid you in a top-secret terrorist takedown. What can't WAR DOGS do? [US Navy Flickr]
