Memorial Day and MDW

After spending a weekend watching those of us who have family members who either were or are spending time serving our country it seems only fair to concentrate on the four-legged service members and their handlers.  I recently found an amazing article and film that spends a great deal of time educating us “civilians” about what they endure for training and daily life and even retirement.  Please take the time to learn and watch and support our military fuzzy four-legged service men/women that keep our soldiers safe even at the sake of their own.
