Bad Taste?: USMC
If you read the most recent issue of GQ, you've probably seen the article about the Marines suffering from PTSD abandoned by the corp. The journalist tells of a soldier who snapped when the CO had his mutt killed because it was a 'biohazard'. I may not be in a position to say the the USMC were in bad form dismissing the soldiers (though Dobie's story is fairly damning), because I don't know both sides of the story, but I would say that not being a dog person is bad taste. The guys in WWII certainly didn't think dogs were biohazards, why should we now?
