Man's best friend goes to war.

When Gus Dempsey joins the US Marine Corps, he knows without a doubt that he will make a great dog handler. He's always been good with dogs. In fact, he's often better with dogs than he is with people.

But Loki is not the dog that Gus was expecting. Fun-loving and playful, Loki acts more like a pet than the well-trained, bomb-sniffing Marine that he's supposed to be.

When Gus and Loki deploy to Afghanistan, though, they have no choice but to learn to work together. Because in war, getting along is a matter of life and death.

DOG TAGS is a series of stand-alone books, each exploring the bond between soldier and dog in times of war.

        This is a great historical fiction book. It touches at the heart strings for the costs our service men, and even dogs, pay for their duties in the military. Read this book to learn how helpful dogs have been to the military.
