Fallen Local Soldier’s Dog Comes Home
Last August, a soldier from DeSoto, James Ide IV, was killed during an attack in Afghanistan. He was a bomb-sniffing dog handler. His dog made it through the attack, but was traumatized.
The Army retrained the dog for civilian life, and this week retired her and sent her home to the soldier’s window and two young children. Kind of happy and sad at the same time. I’m certain Ddaphne means a lot to the family.
