Channing Tatum, star and co-director of the upcoming movie “Dog,” visited Joint Base San Antonio Feb. 9 on a USO tour to promote the movie, visit with military members, as well as learn about the missions of various units.

During the visit, Tatum and his group were able to promote the movie and get a close-up view of the mission of the Brooke Army Medical Center’s Center for the Intrepid and BAMC USO office at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston; the Lt. Col. Daniel E. Holland Military Working Dog Hospital and MWD Whelping facility at JBSA-Lackland; and the 902nd Civil Engineer Squadron explosive ordnance disposal unit at JBSA-Chapman Annex. Tatum also participated in a military working dog demonstration.

JBSA members were able to get a prescreening of the movie at JBSA-Kelly Field, JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Fort Sam Houston. In the movie, Channing plays former U.S. Army Ranger Jackson Briggs, who is trying to bring his fallen comrade’s dog, a Belgian Malinois named Lulu, to his friend’s funeral in time.
