Sgt. Aaron Yoder was shot in his right leg while trying to protect his dog, Ssg. Bart, as they searched for roadside bombs in southern Afghanistan in early April. He was fired upon by Taliban fighters who intended to kill Bart. Knowing that the soldier dogs have amazing bomb-sniffing skills that are helping allied soldiers detect and remove the deadly devices, Taliban fighters have begun to target soldier dogs because of the life-saving work they do with their handlers.
