Dogs have been used in battle by other countries for thousands of years, but when World War II started, the United States had not adopted an official military war dog program. Dog enthusiasts strongly believed that dogs could aid the military and began trying to persuade the government. This group became Dogs for Defense, Inc.

Through a variety of artifacts and simulations, students will follow the journey of their pet dog as he leaves the family sofa, enters the battlefield, and returns home a hero.
