Another military dog post, this one related to Seal Team 6 ...

My Favorite Photo Ever: A Military Dog Jumping Out of a Helicopter - Alexis Madrigal - Technology - The Atlantic

Thank you, Rebecca Frankel of Foreign Policy, for creating a wonderful gallery about the dogs of war, pegged to the fact that a dog was among the contingent of commandos sent to kill Osama Bin Laden. The two lead photographs show dogs jumping out of aircraft, which I find totally mindblowing. Here's Frankel's excellent explanation: 
"The question of how the dog got into bin Laden's compound is no puzzle -- the same way the special ops team did, by being lowered from an MH-60s helicopter. In fact, U.S. Air Force dogs have been airborne for decades, though the earliest flying dogs accompanied Soviet forces in the 1930s."
