Over coffee a friend said, “Memorial day should not just be a day – we need to remember those who sacrifice every day”.
And, it’s true. So, I took what she said to heart and am extending our memorial day tribute to those dogs who serve along side and with those who serve our country.
One of the “unsung heroes” of our land of the free and home of the brave is the military dog. Recently, posted on Facebook, was the story of the 4,000 dogs that served in the Vietnam War and had to be left behind when the U.S. pulled out.
They’re now working on creating a memorial for them. And, I hope they succeed! The story is touching and sad.
To our working dogs…who in pure dog fashion…are always faithful!
