An adrenaline cure

Oddly - at a moment of seemingly high anxiety - as a soldier steps off the edge of the cliff to do bungee jumping, or as the raft he's in sprays through some churning white water, there's a cure happening. It's the adrenaline cure. For a decade, Warrior Adventure Quest has been

The magic soldier-man

Sarge looks nervous. She has the somewhat disconnected but hyper-vigilant appearance that many of her breed possess. These dogs' owners and fans say the dogs are "different." A complex mixture of the comfort of home and the disquiet of war seems to bond them to the soldiers who have saved
