Pictures of the Day – The Dogs of U.S. Seal Teams and Special Forces.

February 13, 2013 Pictures of the Day: The dogs of the U.S. Navy’s Seal Teams and U.S. Army’s Special Forces (Delta Force). Even dogs need protection … a military working dog wears Doggles to protect his eyes as a Chinook helicopter takes off in Afghanistan.

Move over Inspector Rex, the super-secret SEAL Team 6 has a smart dog.

The mystery dog is likely to be a German shepherd or Belgian Malinois, the breeds trained by US military dog handlers, The New York Times reported.

There should be little reason to speculate about why there was a dog involved – man’s best friend is a pretty fearsome warrior

“There should be little reason to speculate about why there was a dog involved – man’s best friend is a pretty fearsome warrior,” said the deputy managing editor of ForeignPolicy.com Rebecca Frankel

Fearless … US soldier with the 10th Special Forces Group and his military working dog jump off the ramp of a CH-47 Chinook helicopter during training.

“They’re a central part of US efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan – as of early 2010 the US Army had 2800 active-duty dogs deployed (the largest canine contingent in the world),” said Frankel.

Man’s best friend … US Army Staff Sergeant Kevin Reese and his military working dog Grek in Iraq.

Canine warrior … a Navy SEAL platoon performs a land warfare demonstration.

Looking cool in the heat of battle … Eddie the dog hops aboard a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter, along with Iraqi security forces and soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division. (Credits – by Glenda Kwik for The Sydney Morning Herald).
