“The capability they (MWD) bring to the fight cannot be replicated by man or machine. By all measures of performance their yield outperforms any asset we have in our inventory.  Our Army (and military) would be remiss if we failed to invest more in the incredibly valuable resource.”  Gen David Petraeus, 9 Feb 2008


Lets get this done for our nation's MWDs!! Please sign this petition and share it with all your friends! Click on the petition link in the left hand column of this page. We only have until 3 Jan 2013 to reach 25,000 signatures! I know if we all took 3 mins out of our day and shared it with one person, we could reach 25,000 over night! Please do your part to help our 4-legged heroes!

With regard to the White House petition, prior to setting it up, we were advised by Senator Blumenthal’s office that he would change the wording in the final NDAA to reflect the wording in the House version of the NDAA. We also began a campaign asking constituents of the Conference Committee members to ask the committee to use the House wording. The White House petition was set up in anticipation of the House wording used, which we all now know Senator McCain blocked. Unfortunately, changes are not allowed to petitions to the White House, so it stands as originally written. Please sign and share with everyone you know! (you do need to live in the US in order for your signature to count towards the 25,000) We only have until 3 Jan 2013 to make this happen for our 4-legged heroes! Let's do something about their classification, since our governemnt has not!
