Good Day to Remember that Freedom Isn't Free - Memorial Day Salute 2014

memorial day 2010- bill petros - 228   To all service members in all branches of our U.S. armed forces, we thank you for your courage, your strength, and your sacrifices. I would like to take a moment to reflect upon the service and sacrifice of our U.S. military servicemen and women.

Military Working Dogs serve long, useful careers, working for the Department of Defense for at least 10-12 years.  Before 2000, when it came time to retire, most of the dogs were euthanized.  Fortunately with "Robby's Law" that was passed on November 6, 2000, retired military dogs can be adopted out.  Now hundreds of dogs are adopted out of Lackland Air Force base in Texas each year.  Some are retired because of age or health reasons, and others because they couldn't obtain or maintain their certifications.  The dogs must maintain a 95% rate of accuracy in order to be used in service. Handlers Adopt First Adoption dibs go first to the most recent handler.  Such a strong bond is created between the dog and ... Read more
