Turkish forces have announced the success of a plan to encircle Kurdish forces in Afrin, a city in Northern Syria. It has been several weeks now since Erdogan began his international offensive against the Syrian Kurds and invaded Syrian territory, due to Turkish paranoia over the regional Kurdish Militia’s growing power in Northern Syria. Turkey also claims they have ties to the PKK, a Kurdish leftist secessionist party in Southern Turkey that opposes the Erdogan regime. The veracity of this claim is unknown but doubtful.

On this day in 1942, the Quartermaster Corps of the US Army began to train dogs for the new war dog program, called the K-9 Corps. Well over a million dogs had served in WWI carrying messages throughout the mazes of trenches and providing psychological comfort to the soldiers. The practice of training dogs was abandoned until WWII when the Quartermaster Corps was tasked with gearing the seven accepted breeds of dog for war. If you're interested, look up Chips the German Shepherd, the hero of the K-9 unit who was awarded the Silver Star and the Purple Heart!
