Unsung heroes, animals played vital and varied roles in WWI

In this undated WWI file photo, soldiers move toward the front with their machine guns and ammunition pulled by dogs in Belgium. They were messengers, spies, sentinels and the heavy haulers of World War I, carrying supplies, munitions and food and leading cavalry charges. The horses, mules, dogs and pigeons were a vital part of the Allied war machine, saving countless lives _ and dying by the millions. (AP Photo, File)
