I agree that the 60 Minutes piece was good, but it would have been so much better if the viewers got to see the TREMENDOUS talent and skill that Ax has!!! I have seen him do things I have NEVER seen another working dog do, and he is to be commended for the PHENOMENAL things he has done on the battlefield to keep OUR family safe!!!

Thank you SFC Corbin and MSG Ax for your service, sacrifice, dedication and professionalism!!!

If there was ever a reason to have a "like" function on this BB, this post would - in my opinion - be it.

Ed Bradley

Now years ago, about '96 or so, Ed Bradley and 60 Minutes brought a number of us who'd served in El Salvador to Washington DC.

To include General Stringham (Ret.).

We interviewed for several days to include a former FMLN - PRTC commandante, Gilberto Osorio.

The interview and subsequent segment was very positive and helped then Congressman Bob Dornan get full combat recognition approved for the war by Congress.

Bradley again came out when we dedicated the ES memorial stone and tree at Arlington. Great story - that effort was sponsored by the No Greater Love Foundation and assisted greatly by Major Andy Messing (Retired), an ES veteran himself.

Ken Bowra brought a C-130 up from Bragg with active duty guys from 7th Group who had served in ES, as well, for the ceremony.

That's two times I know of personally where 60 Minutes did right by us.
