Honoring military dogs on Veteran’s Day

Today is Veteran’s Day, when the country honors the service men and women who have given up so much to ensure our freedom. And right alongside those human warriors canine soldiers offer service, trained to protect the troops and keep them from harm.

On Nov. 7 a special ceremony was held on Capitol Hill with the American Humane Association, a Tribute to War Heroes on Both Ends of the Leash.

The reception was made possible by Virginia Congressman Jim Moran, the co-chair of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus. Rep. Moran represents Virgina’s 8th district, which includes Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax County, Reston and Falls Church.

Special guests at the ceremony included a man whose guide dog saved his life by leading him down 78 flights of stairs in the World Trade Center on 9/11, and two military working dogs who served in Iraq.

Speaking of hero dogs, the Hallmark Channel is premiering the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST. Eight canine finalists will be honored for their devotion, bravery and companionship. The dogs were selected in a nationwide online search and represent categories of working dogs including service, therapy, military, law enforcement and arson, hearing, guide, and search and rescue.

Dogs aren’t just helping our military during combat tours, either. Organizations such as Pets2Vets, based here in Arlington, are rescuing shelter dogs and training them to help veterans cope with combat duty-related issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Read about P2V founder Dave Sharpe in a Two Dog Tales blog post from last year.

Our human and canine military protectors deserve to be honored every single minute of every day for all they do for us. Make sure to thank a vet today.

  1. War disgusts me. To put a dog who only wants love having God in them into an tormentor like war, and then praise them for being there is like praising someone for killing someone. We should not have war, and be willing to die for Christ to gain an infinite prize,and not torment the dogs physically, and mentally like the human animal man has done. Humans should hang our heads in shame for even introducing the dog our best friend into the demonic horrors of war. A lot of repenting needs to be done.

  4. To honer war in anyway is honoring the idols God frowned upon like Baal. or the sacrifice of Sid om.and Gomorrah God also frowned upon. Isaiah 1; 10Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

    11To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

    Doing those ritualistic sacrifices, and war was the sin of those two cities,and not sex of any kind. The Islamic nation is as guilty as the doomed cities of Sodom, and Gomorrah. That should blow the lid off of the demonic lies spoken against all of the sexualities.
