KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN - FEBRUARY 25: SGT Kevin Ingram from Wheeling, West Virginia with the U.S. Army's 4th squadron 2d Cavalry Regiment comforts a puppy that had its ears cut off while visiting an Afghan National Police (ANP) outpost that was once home to Osama Bin Laden during a patrol on February 25, 2014 near Kandahar, Afghanistan. Ears are often removed from puppies to prepare them to become fighting dogs.

    We should not be protecting people who would do such cruel things to a puppy. These people have such a violent history and they will remain violent long after we leave. It shows what different values Americans have. Way to Go SGT.Carmody, well done!
