Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran's Day and I hope that everyone is having a great day.  However, in all the celebrations today and left out of all the lists of veterans is a group that have served the military and police without question and with as much loyalty.  Those missing are the animals.  These brave creatures have served with our men and women in the military.  They go where others would fear to tread without reservation.  Some have been decorated over the years for their heroic service, yet after their service is over, no matter what they have done, they are tossed aside.  Is it any wonder that today we question the support given to returning vets when the 4-legged ones were treated this way long ago.  The way our country treats its veterans is a disgrace and it is time that ALL vets are provided for and that we recognize their contributions.

So, today take a moment to recognize and thank a veteran for their service to you and to this country.  As for the 4-legged service members who served us well and who were never recognized take a moment to think about them and how without them we wouldn't be as free a country as we are now.  Think about them, learn about their contributions and make a decision that we WILL take care of and recognize ALL our veterans.
