The folks at K9 Veterans Day are hoping to have March 13th recognized as national K9 Veterans Day. I think this is a great idea. We don’t need to wait for Congress to make it happen. Let’s honor our K9 vets and their handlers on March 13th from now on.
From the K9 Veterans Day web site:
March 13, 1942 is the official birthday of the United States K9 Corps, and so it seems only right to annually honor their service on that date. They served to save, and they deserve to be remembered.
There are no membership fees required for you to join us in this honorable undertaking, and we are not asking you to raise money for us. You see, just like those whom we seek to honor, who never asked for anything but love, we only seek your heart felt desire to help, and to be a voice for those deserving Veterans who have no voice.
Thanks Joe White for getting this started, rest peacefully. Thanks Sally for keeping this idea alive!
