    That's the first tear that I've had in my eye in a long time.

    Those of us who have done that know exactly how this fine soldier feels. RIP Bodza, and thank you for your service.

    I am with you SJ 40. My better half and I rescue dogs and being a retired Marine, I feel deeply and also shed the tears for the fallen. Those dogs are amazing and fear nothing to protect us and make us happy and safe.

    Good Speed Bodza and may you rest in peace knowing you are loved and remembered.
    Semper Fi!!

    Sad...

    I'm glad the handler got to keep his dog and I'm glad that Bodza got the respect he was due...but like all have said, it's still sad

    I can't even watch that video. It was hard enough to put down our Jack Russel, but the cancer came fast and hard. I mean in a matter if three months she went from a negative x-ray to there were spots everywhere. The vet broke down crying when she had to tell us.

    That's a heart breaker of a story.
