Harris Done’s Always Faithful is a beautiful film that explores the compelling dedication of military dog teams on the front lines of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the intense bond that develops between man and dog as they put their lives on the line day after day. The film will be out on DVD and available on iTunes tomorrow, November 26, 2013.

Always Faithful follows five young Marines from training through deployment. After the grueling competition for placement in the K9 program, these soldiers must train their new, four-legged partners to become highly skilled and reliable collaborators, capable of functioning on the deadliest battlefields in the scorching deserts of the Middle East.

The stakes are unthinkable. There is no room for error. These dog teams are responsible for the lives of countless fellow Marines. Their contribution is extraordinary, and their stories are heart wrenching and unforgettable tales of bravery and sacrifice.

Made with the cooperation of the U.S. Marine Corps, Always Faithful is directed by Harris Done (War Dogs of the Pacific) and produced by Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Moll (The Last Days, Inheritance). Done and Moll have previously collaborated on such notable documentaries as the sports adventure Running The Sahara, Oscar-winner The Last Days, and Grammy-winner Foo Fighters: Back And Forth. For more information about the film visit www.alwaysfaithfulfilm.com
