"Hi Robin! I'd like to send a salute to my husband former U.S. Marine Sgt. Shain Nickerson and his military working dog, Aja.
While they were deployed in 2011 to Afghanistan, Aja found multiple IED's and saved many lives.
Recently, Aja was retired from Camp Lejeune, NC and luckily, we were able to adopt her. She is now living the life she deserves and I am forever grateful for her! Aja, along with the rest of the Military Working Dogs are truly America's unsung heroes!!
God bless the men and women serving overseas and the MWD's (military working dogs) that are sacrificing their lives on the frontline! Come home soon!"
