One member of the elite Navy SEAL team that killed Osama bin Laden wears a different type of dog tag. A military dog accompanied the SEAL team during their raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, ABC News reports.
Not only can military dogs detect bombs and jump out of planes into war zones, they're also equipped with the latest in military gear, according to ABC. These dogs wear waterproof body armor, head-mounted infrared cameras, and ear bugs. The military uses a variety of breeds, and these dogs train right alongside their human team members.
