Video showcases German shepherds

The U.S. military uses German shepherd dogs to help protect the nation, a new Postal Service video shows.

The dogs’ natural instincts make them effective in detecting explosives and apprehending enemies.

“My hats off to these dogs and the jobs they do to keep America safe,” Army Staff Sgt. Terry Young says in the 2-minute video.

The video is one of four that USPS has produced to promote Military Working Dogs, a 20-stamp booklet that was released this month.

The other videos, which also are available on the Postal Service’s YouTube channel, highlight Labrador retriever, Dutch shepherd and Belgian Malinois dogs.
