Thanks On Friday: Thankful for Veterans

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

Today I want to express my heartfelt thanks to American’s veterans for their dedication and service to our great country.  Not only have our veterans protected us and our freedom during times of war, they also look after us during times of peace as well.

While we would prefer that things always be peaceful the reality is often otherwise.  During times of war or crisis our veterans were there.  It’s not just the human veterans that I am thankful for today, I am also thankful for the countless animals that served our country too.  The horses, dogs, mules, homing pigeons, and others served our country with pride and dignity too.

I am thankful that we have a special day set aside to honor our veterans, including my Grandma, a veteran of WWII.  Thank you all for being there for all of us.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Most eloquently stated.
We could never be living here in the Land of the Free if it weren’t for the Brave Veterans everywhere.

I honor the Veterans too and hope that someday they’ll be able to come back home to find jobs and much needed affordable medical care. Our country is good at sending people to war, but not good at helping them once they come home.

Great post Brian. Many people do not think about all of the animals that serve our country too, so I’m glad you put that in there. They really do have important jobs! Purrs to you and happy Friday!

What a nice post. Our nephew is a Marine and went to the Olive Garden friday, not only was his meal free but they gave him a $10 gift card as well. So happy people are thanking all that have served. 🙂
