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!
Beautiful post. Love the picture of you with the flag.
Beautifully written, Brian. I love the graphic too. Thanks for pointing out about animals serving as well.
Happy Veterans Day kitties! It’s Happy Remembrance Day here in Canada! 🙂
Beautiful post, Brian! I love how you included all veterans, human and animal. I’m thankful for veterans, too!
A beautiful remembrance post. We will never forget.
That is such a great graphic Brian. We sure do appreciate the veterens too. We honor all of the them. Have a great Friday. Stay warm.
Most eloquently stated.
We could never be living here in the Land of the Free if it weren’t for the Brave Veterans everywhere.
Thanks for remembering our brave Veterans Brian.
Happy veteran’s day.. Your grandma is a veteran? I didn’t realize ladies were in WW2
This is a really lovely tribute, handsome Brian! Hooorah for your grandma! Take care
That’s a terrific image and post, Brian.

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.
A lovely post for your Veterans Day – it is our Remembrance Day in the UK too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

What a great reminder, Brian, of all the animals who also served! A beautiful tribute to everyone who sacrificed for the rest of us.
Happy Veterans’ Day, Brian. We, too, honor our Veterans today and every day!
Very well said, Brian. Happy Veteran’s Day!
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!
