Dogs are veterans too

Most people remember the human veterans of war, as they should. My mommy’s Dad served as a physician on the USS Repose during the Vietnam War. Her grandfather served in WWII. We always remember that dogs are war veterans on Memorial Day too. Many of them gave their lives willingly and lovingly to serve their country. If you’re interested in learning more about war dogs, here are some great resources to help celebrate these furry veterans today too.
