One of our soldier's in Iraq befriended a puppy and has cared for Ratchet for months while serving over 15-months longer than her original commitment
(due to the military's "stop-loss" policy).
Ratchet was headed to the airport
with the help of "Baghdad Pups"
Click here for Operation Baghdad Pups
to be flown home to her parents' in Minneapolis, MN when her commanding officers confiscated the dog, prohibiting him to leave Iraq.

Apparently, it is against military regulations for active duty troops to befriend animals and could face court-marshal, while some have seen their beloved companions brutally executed with a bullet to the head by officers not willing to bend the rules.
