Frog Dog, the ultimate weapon in bomb detection and ambush protection

Former Navy SEAL Trevor Marshek and his war buddy, Chopper

"I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for that dog."

That's what former Navy SEAL Trevor Marshek had to say about Chopper, the dog by his side through several tours of combat and a recent subject of NRA Life of Duty's Patriot Profiles.

Presented by Brownells, NRA Life of Duty is an exclusive program for members of the military, law enforcement and first responders who serve and protect our nation. Every month, they look into the lives and actions of those men and women by way of a Patriot Profile. This one focused on Trevor and Chopper.

A free spirit surfer dude from California, Trevor had little thought of discipline or duty until the day we all remember 9/11. Soon after, his brother enlisted in the United States Air Force. That's when Trevor decided to go for the SEALs. Beyond a call to duty, he had a personal reason to serve.
