Animals in War

Veterans Day We are blessed with selfless, caring, individuals who are willing to risk their lives to maintain our freedom and well being. Take a moment on this Veterans Day to remember the sacrifices of the humans and non-humans who give themselves up in service. Throughout military history, animals have gone to war alongside humans. In On War: Animals in War see a gallery of photos from the Civil War to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Great photo! Liked clicking through the slideshow too. I compiled some recent examples of the many ways animals (dogs especially) help our veterans and serve duty as well. Just amazing.

It was a very reflective mood. It seemed the war than those who still have a lot of the animals affected.
