USAIC Public Affairs Office – Military working dogs have been used by the U.S. armed forces since World War I.

In World War II, 436 scout dogs walked combat patrols overseas, often detecting the enemy at a 1,000 yards, long before men became aware of them.

Dogs continued to serve with distinction in other conflicts. In Korea, the Army used about 1,500 dogs, primarily for guard duty.

During the Vietnam War, nearly 4,000 dogs were employed and, officially, 281 were killed in action.
