During a raid on an al-Qaeda base, he supported British forces. But then something unexpected happened. Machine gun-toting invaders quickly surrounded the British soldiers. Kuno saw his human companions trapped and made the decision to save them.
The insurgents fired grenades and machine guns at Sherrain Reber, pinning him down and preventing him from moving. Kuno became aware of this and jumped through a shower of gunfire to stop the attacker’s scheme. The mission was successfully completed. Kuno sustained serious injuries while trying to save his soldiers. He was taken to the US Army Veterinary Treatment Facility for treatment because his back legs were covered in gunshot wounds.
After his paw was sliced, Kuno was forced to wear a brace on one side and a prosthetic on the other.
