Happy Veteran’s Day

Happy Veteran’s Day to all the Veterans out there. Thank you for your time in service you will never be forgotten.

My dad was a Veteran at one time, he is now remembered on Memorial Day. He served in Vietnam and I am proud of you for all that you did for our county.

And lets not forget about our Military Working Dogs, they deserve some recognition this Veterans Day also.

Dogs in warfare

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaDogs in warfare have a long history starting in ancient times. From ‘war dogs’ trained in combat to their use as scouts, sentries and trackers, their uses have been varied and some continue to exist in modern military usage.See more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogs_in_warfareMilitary Working Dog Adoptions

New national monument honors military service dogs will be unveiled Jan 1st, 2013.

The public will get a sneak peak of the monument at the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena on Jan. 1, when a floral replica will be used as Natural Balance’s float. Burnam, dogs and handlers from every military service branch will ride on it.

When the float goes on display afterward at Victory Park, the real bronze monument will make its public debut next to it, Herrick said. Then the bronze monument will go on tour as it heads to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. The location was chosen as the site for the monument because that’s where most of the nation’s military’s dogs are trained.
