Today is Canine Veterans Day!

Today is Canine Veterans Day!   Soldiers rely on military service dogs to sniff out explosives, listen for ambushes, or take down combatants. Military dogs make soldiers feel safe, and for good reason: Since coming into the armed forces in 1942, service dogs have been saving an estimated 150-200 warriors’ lives each. Even off the frontlines, these dogs keep saving lives by helping soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder. Our veterans — human and animals — have each other’s backs.  Check out the great history behind this special day!
