Fort Drum, NY – For 243 years the U.S. Army has been fostering brotherhood among its ranks.
Born of the Army, the “Currahee Brothers” forged lifelong bonds in bloody combat during the Vietnam War, and continue reuniting half a century later.
They may appear as simply a group of old veterans congregating in a hotel lobby somewhere outside of Washington, D.C., laughing, joking and telling stories. Instead of celebrating a day of birth, this brotherhood assembles to observe a solemn anniversary.
Their name comes from 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, which reactivated in 1967 as a “stand alone” task force to increase American presence in Vietnam.

Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – They look like normal everyday dogs with their tails wagging. But when given the right command by the right person, military working dogs “snap-to,” just like the disciplined Soldiers they protect.
Working alongside U.S. service members throughout the world, military working dogs are a dedicated, reliable battlefield companion to the military police (MP) handler. They are always on guard to protect the team, either through bomb detection or when necessary aggressive protection.
