We just received this holiday postcard of MWD Grady, posing in a Santa hat. The chocolate lab is stationed at Camp Leatherneck with his handler, Marine Cpl. Eddie Garcia. Rest assured, this team is in good company as they’re stationed with a small but awesome group of dog teams for the rest of their deployment. It’s worth noting, as we enter our fourth year of our War Dog of the Week feature, that this could be our last holiday postcard from Afghanistan.  

Happy new year, all.
