Honoring Our Heroes

Memorial Day Weekend is around the corner! The weekend is going to be busy, full of fun activities like BBQs, getting together with friends and family, celebrating and honoring those American Heroes who have sacrificed themselves for our freedoms. Not only will we be honoring human heroes but also the animals who have served this great country as well. Mom and I are currently reading: The Dogs of War: The Courage, Love, and Loyalty of Military Working Dogs; by Lisa Rogak. This book is pretty good so far. It describes some of the history of the courageous doggies in the Military, how they’ve saved troops from enemy ambushes, brought aid to fallen soldiers, and helped track down the enemy. It’s pretty cool to learn about how us doggies have been standing together with our human companions protecting and serving the United States of America over the decades.
Check out what Mom put in my Lunchbox today, in honor of this Memorial Day.
