U.S. Marines found Sandy in the streets of Qalah-ye Now, Afghanistan beaten, malnourished and pregnant.
But after Sandy, under the Marines nursing care, gave birth to a healthy litter, she gave them a gift that would one day save their lives over and over: a little, yellow puppy the Americans named Willy Pete.
Like his mother before him, Willy Pete has served not only as a companion to the Marines of Company D, 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, but also as a guardian.

Willie Pete is short for white phosphorus. I don’t think they still fire those rounds anymore,but we used them a lot in VN to mark targets.
Oh yeah. I know what WP is. Or was. Ouch! Ain’t puttin’ that crap out once it pops.
I hope that action is started as soon as possible to make sure that when its time for Willy Pete to retire that he be allowed to come to the United States for his work protecting our Marines.
Kerry got his didn’t he? He was a coward. Still is a stinking coward. Yet he got his. Makes me want to throw mine in the river.
Amazing he’s so clever and seems to know what he’s doing without formal training.
From the title, I thought it was about hanoi john kerry.
Kerry got his didnt he? He was a coward. Still is a stinking coward. Yet he got his. Makes me want to throw mine in the river.
The big difference is that Kerry gave himself the purple heart, you and other honorable recipients EARNED your Purple Hearts!
Me too at first. But it would have read “Purple Heart for a POS”. Who, believe it or not, is the secstate. WTH?
I highly recommended to my daughter who lives alone to get a dog as a first alarm system. Dogs always give an initial alert as to an intruder which gives you the time to grab a weapon. Thankfully we live in Texas where intruders who are not welcomed or come with bad intentions are allowed to be dealt with by protecting yourself and property.
So, does that make him a hot dog?
I second that recommendation. I have a friend who had two great Danes and they were both very intelligent in discerning the hearts of men, lol...and very gentle and loving with family.
When I was young I had a lab/dane, and if they had filmed another Hound of the Baskervilles he would have been perfect. I’m like Butterbean and he could knock me down with ease...ginormous. But very gentle and intelligent dog.
I left the back door into the high fenced yard open 24-7, whether I was home or not. On his hind legs he was six inches taller than me, with the heavy body of the lab. I never got broke into.
Mine is quite gentle and polite with strangers too. I’ve never had any anger or truly fearful responses from any of the trades people or delivery people who often come here. Indeed, they all like him and my Pitador. Of course, someone who approached with evil in mind is likely to have a very different response to my two large doggies, and might well be seriously mauled by them if he tried to break in and menace me.
:-) Well, it was one that I was not out there looking for!!
He sure looks like he’s a Kuchi or Kangal, or perhaps a mix.
Awesome dogs, not to be trifled with.
My kinda dog fer sure.
That is a good yellowdog! Wonderful story, thanks for the ping.
