Mike Ritland, the founder of Trikos International, recently uploaded a post on his social media account. A Navy SEAL and a dog were highlighted in his post. The Navy SEAL had his face on the dog’s neck, which was reclining on an American flag cushion.
The dog’s name was Carlos, and the handler and owner on the post was Mike Mike. Carlos was a member of a long line of battle canines who served in Afghanistan. While on a military assignment, Carlos and other military dogs secured their safety.
Military canines frequently suffer from psychological disorders as a result of their deployments in other countries. They are continually exposed to chaotic and stressful surroundings, which traumatizes them. When these service dogs fail to fulfill their responsibilities, they are euthanized. Ritland’s company would frequently try to save as many pups as possible through their Warrior Dog Foundation.
After the war, the Military Police Corps took over the training of military canines. According to recent statistics, there are approximately 500 dog teams fighting in various conflict zones such as Afghanistan and Iraq. One of these canines was Carlos. He was fortunate enough to be able to return to civilian life.
The Navy SEALs placed the US flag around Carlos’s body to honor his service to his country. This flag was carried by Mike and Carlos on every mission. However, there was still some Afghan dirt on the fabric.
Carlos was properly farewelled with his favorite snacks. During his final rites, his beloved people were also there. Finally, the devoted dog got his favorite steak before passing away.
When it came time to say farewell to Carlos, Mike and his fellow Navy SEALs were overcome with emotion. While he was alive, he did his best for his country and was always by his handler’s side.
