Phyllis Zimbler Miller Blogs Military Films

I thought subscribers and visitors to this blog would be interested in another blog edited by my friend Phyllis Zimbler Miller. Generally speaking, but especially this one:

Phyllis says, "Producer and director Harris Done of the new documentary WAR DOGS OF THE PACIFIC has preserved an amazing story of the U.S. Marines training donated family pets for scout dogs in the jungle fighting in the Pacific during World War II.

"The dogs' abilities to smell and hear sounds that the men couldn't saved an incredible number of American lives. And the bonds formed between the dogs and their handlers are truly compelling."

I hope you'll go to learn more about this film, pick up links to it and others.
