Today is Veterans Day in the U.S. and we all 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.
Speaking of Veterans, how about a really good story? Check out the story over at Zoolatry today, you’ll like it.
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
we say thank you to all who came to bring freedom… and we hope we will not give it away to those who want our doom….
Without our veterans we would NOT be the Nation we are today………….proud and free.
Hugs, Teddy and Mom
We thank our Veterans over and over. Without them, we would not be living the wonderful life we have.
Thank you for the reminder about our freedom and how we were lucky enough to be free.
Freedom and how we keep it here in the USA is nothing to take for granted.
Each of your words rings so true, though I often feel sad that too few remember and honor. I also thank you for sharing our posting about Marcus and Ranger.
Many, many thanks to all the veterans out there.

Yes, we do thanks the veterans and hope they’re not turning in their graves over the new breed of Nazis taking over our democracy.
Thanks for reminding me to visit Zoolatry.
Very lovely tribute!
We too thank veterans for all they did and do.
I thank the veterans of all the allied countries.
I’ll have to read this man’s story. Thank you for sharing. ~hugs~ My husband is thankful for *his* US Air Force service as it helped him mature and gain focus, just in time for us to meet. 😀 Serving as a computer technician, he comforted his mother during Desert Storm by saying, “What am I going to do? Throw floppy disks at them?” Yes, we’re that old. lol
Veterans are heroes!
