In addition to the countless numbers of brave soldiers who put the well-being of their country before themselves, I hope we don’t forget that other little creatures serve our country as well. Since dogs, mostly German Shepards, have such a keen sense of smell, they are used to sniff out bombs among other things. Just like the soldiers, these dogs die in action, have posttraumatic stress disorder, and risk their lives everyday while we are safe in the comfort of our homes. I’ve never liked the idea of dragging these perfect creatures into our problems, the wars we humans started. But dogs are right by the soldiers’ sides, and deserve to be commemorated too.
