Thank you Daily Wire. Very cute recreation, but the “live” version of Conan will be leaving the Middle East for the White House sometime next week! https://t.co/Z1UfhxsSpT— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)
"Thank you Daily Wire," Trump tweeted after midnight Wednesday. "Very cute recreation, but the 'live' version of Conan will be leaving the Middle East for the White House sometime next week!"Conan was hurt after being exposed to live electrical cables but has returned to active duty, the Pentagon said Wednesday.
Hero dog injured in al-Baghdadi raid: Unnamed, but not unsungGen. Frank McKenzie, who leads U.S. Central Command, told reporters the dog was injured when it came in contact with the cables as it pursued al-Baghdadi in a tunnel underneath a compound in northwestern Syria.
McKenzie said the dog has worked with special operations forces for four years and taken part in about 50 missions. He said such working dogs are "critical members of our forces."When Trump first posted the altered image on Twitter of him presenting a medal to the dog, it came with an all-caps tweet of "AMERICAN HERO."The image was derived from a photo taken at a 2017 East Room ceremony to present retired Army medic James McCloughan with the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of 10 men during the Vietnam War. The Medal of Honor is the most prestigious military decoration awarded to U.S. service members.
