Taking off for the weekend

We’re going to take off for the weekend, so it will be quiet around these parts through Monday. We hope you have a fun Memorial Day weekend, and if you are a service member, thank you for doing what a lot of us couldn’t even imagine doing.

In honor of this day, here is the podcast (link is at the top of the page) of an yesterday’s episode of Fresh Air. It features an interview with Jose Armenta, a marine who worked with a service dog named Zenit in Afghanistan, searching for roadside bombs. Armenta was injured, Zenit was assigned to a new soldier. Fast forward several months, and Armenta realized what an attachment he had to the dog, and started the process of trying to adopt him.

Zenit and Armanta are featured in this month’s National Geographic magazine¬†featuring Hero Dogs.
