"It's so funny how something as simple as a puppy can make even the hardest, toughened soldier melt upon a few kisses to the face."

From the Soldier:
Tracer. Well i was one of the first soldiers from my unit to arrive here and when i got in my tent and picked out my cot he was sleeping under it. i don't really know how old he was maybe like 2 months if that. it took me a whole day to pick a name because i didn't want it to seem to cheesy with the army lingo but i wanted it to be a cool name you know, so i finally came up with Tracer and it stuck. we got a doggy doc out there to give him some shots so we could keep him on base, and when he was able to keep up we were so proud because he would go on every dismounted patrol with us no matter what time. he was a quiet puppy only barking when you played with him, but now he's almost around 70lbs and he's pretty protective of our platoon. Tracer wasn't trained by any means by the military but he has taken it upon himself to be our body guards while on patrol. keeping locals at bay if needed, and warning us if there is someone we cant see by barking and growing at him until we investigate. he's grown up and he is respected by the locals because they know that he is our dog, he's one of us. I don't know how he got under my cot last year or maybe i sat on his cot. however it happened im glad it did i gave him his first bath a month ago with dog shampoo he wasn't to happy at the time but he was pretty excited after. im not the only one who loves him. He is a platoon dog we moved bases and he moved right with us, and every mission to learn our new area he was right next to the lead man our in front of him clearing the way. Tracers been with us his whole life. we're all he knows. there's no telling how the next unit will treat him or if they'll kick him off the base. where would he go? he's been with us through everything this deployment and it wouldn't be right if we didn't try everything we could to bring him home. To him wherever we are is his home and where ever i am i want tracer there, he has become a part of my life. He has become a part our life, and no one gets left behind.
