THE STORY BEHIND THE PIC: Always remember that when the military man or woman serves, the family serves too! Hope you all have a blessed Veterans Day! #thankyouThe story behind this picture... Her dad was leaving on deployment. She was crying, and wouldn't let go of her dad’s hand, even when he stood in line, saluting. Usually when soldiers fall in line getting ready for departure the families stand in front of them to say see you later. When command saw this little girl and how overwhelmed with emotion she was. No one had the heart to break them apart... God bless our military! ~Coach #veteransday #thankyou ... See MoreSee Less
We love our dogs!! #healingWHATS GREAT ABOUT DOGS: This pic shows therapy dogs waiting to enter the hospital rooms of sick children for animal therapy. I am so glad The Honor Group began buying dogs for wounded vets. Their the best and bring healing! #love #pleaseshare ... See MoreSee Less
I can't agree more.
When my son was going through cancer treatment last year, there were few things that brought smiles to him. One was his seeing his brother (doesn't see him often as he's in the Navy) and when the therapy dogs would come visit. They loved him and he loved them.
Keep up the good work!
DON'T EMBARRASS YOURSELF (Veterans vs Memorial Day): There is a difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Both of these times are set aside to honor those who served in the military. However, the purpose of the two days is different, Don't confuse them.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Day (Nov. 11) is intended to thank living veterans for their service. Veterans Day isn't only for those who served during wartime, but rather, according to the VA, a time to "acknowledge that (veterans') contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served - not only those who died - have sacrificed and done their duty."
Memorial Day is on the last Monday in May. Formerly known as Decoration Day. Memorial Day is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who lost their lives as a result of wounds sustained in battle. Both dates are special to remember, love, and never forget! ~Coach
"Veterans have pledged an oath to support and defend the Constitution. A new generation of men and women are answering the call to serve again and are taking The Pledge to put principles before politics."
