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

During the tour, Tatum and his group were able to promote the film and get an up-close view of the Brooke Army Medical Center’s mission center for the Intrepid and BAMC USO office at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston; Lt. Col. Daniel E. Holland’s Military Working Dog Hospital and MWD Whelping Facility at JBSA-Lackland; and the 902 Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit at JBSA-Chapman Annex. Tatum also took part in a military working dog demonstration.

JBSA members were able to attend a screening of the film at JBSA-Kelly Field, JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Fort Sam Houston. In the film, Channing plays former US Army ranger Jackson Briggs, who tries to get his deceased comrade’s dog, a Belgian Malinois named Lulu, to his friend’s funeral in time.
