Did you know?Did you know that a variety of animals have played roles in the armed forces? We've all certainly heard of and respect the many amazing canine war heroes. Did you know, thought, that cats, dolphins, and sea lions, among others, have also played roles in war? Cats have served as mousers and ratters, for example, keeping bases and ships sanitary and safe from rodents. Dolphins have served roles such as detecting underwater mines. The sea lion is another underwater animal who has been trained to serve in the armed forces, such as to detect enemy divers, and even to attach tracking devices to these enemy divers. Animals are heroes in more ways than one, and that includes a great many of them earning the title of war hero.
