We know them as the K-9 Corps. On this day in 1942, the Quartermaster Corps (QMC) of the United States Army begn training dogs for the “K-9 Corps".
It is a great story:
Beginning in August 1942, the Quartermaster Corps established dog training centers at Front Royal, VA; Fort Robinson, NE; Cat Island (Gulfport), MS; Camp Rimini (Helena), MT; and San Carlos CA.Long live the K-9 Corps!
Currently, the Army has 578 dog teams which have seen service in Iraq and Afghanistan. The courage and loyalty of these dogs have continued to save lives and prevent injuries since creation of the K-9 Corps.
