Brothers in paws: A list of military-utilized dog breeds

Some of these might surprise you, but one thing is for sure... their bite is much worse than their bark.

"Man's best friend" has been by our side for around 10,000 years. Throughout that time we have used dogs for hunting partners, scavengers, emotional support, transportation of beer, sheep herding, night watch, pulling sleds, rat extermination, and a perfect scapegoat with which to blame for our own silent but deadly farts.

Dogs have many uses within the military, too. They've received medals, and they have saved the lives of countless service members. You may just think German Shepard's have solely led the charge in canine use in the military, but—as this list will show—we have more furry friends out there on the battlefield than you might think.

PBR just dropped a beer with no alcohol and a beer with extra alcohol

Basically the beer-equivalent of an angel and a devil on your shoulders. One telling you to floss and go to sleep at 10 p.m. The other telling you that girl is gonna think you're so hot if you take your shirt off and repeatedly yell "Free Bird" during someone else's karaoke song.

Pabst Blue Ribbon beer is celebrating its 175th birthday the same way most people celebrate their (18th, 19th, 20th and...) 21st birthday--with a whole lot of beer. However, PBR has a new spin on their own birthday gift this year. They are debuting two very different beers: one a totally non-alcoholic beer, and the other a more alcoholic beer (from 4.6% ABV to 6.5% ABV).



In true yin and yang fashion--they come in black and white cans. Debauchery and purity. Dark and light. Stumbling into a Little Caesars at 2 a.m. Being the DD driving your buddies to buy Little Caesars at 2 a.m.

The relatable joys of having back pain under 30​

So much fun. Such a shame not everyone gets to enjoy it!

Back pain is something that 80% of adults are expected to experience at some point in their life. For some, it comes much, much earlier — and the advantages are endless!

It's no secret that those who engage in manual labor from a young age are more susceptible to back pain. It makes sense then, that young vets are oh-so-lucky enough to be some of the chosen few with significant back pain while barely being young enough to crack open a cold one (legally).

Here are some of the fun benefits young back pain sufferers all experience!

But a very special American hero received a whole lot more than that in his mailbox...

What's up with fashion's awkward adaptation of military threads?

Military dress and fashion have been linked for a long time. Bomber jackets were used to save pilots' lives in WWI. Then, in the 1990s, they were used by sitcom bullies on TV shows. US soldiers have been wearing BDU camo pants since the 1980s. Now, Drake wears them in his "In My Feelings" music video.
