Celebrating Our Veterans on Veterans Day

      24 Comments on Celebrating Our Veterans on Veterans Day

Veterans Day 2017Today is Veterans Day in the U.S. and I want to express my heartfelt thanks to our 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, cats, mules, homing pigeons, and others served our country with pride and dignity too.

Please thank a Veteran today, and every single day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We are so very grateful for all of those who have served our country. Summer is right – animals have also been brave and helped defend our country. We are proud of them all…………

Everyone from animal to human deserves a big thanks indeed.


Much appreciation from the three of us as well. They do more to protect us than many even realize.

Amen to that! TW always thanks the service men and women she sees in the Port Authority. Today they passed a young man with a fake leg and thanked him even though he could have lost it as a civilian.
