Song Is From "For What It's Worth" By Buffalo Springfield  1967
This page is dedicated to all the "Forgotten Heros" of war. The man's best friend and
companion for life, the "War Dog". Without these unsung heros no telling how many
more lives would have been lost during war. Listed below are four links to War Dog
web sites which are dedicated to preserving the memory and history of these great
animals. Please take time to look at these web sites and learn more about them than
you ever imagined. More than 6,000 dogs served in Vietnam and over 10,000 lives
were saved because of The War Dog.
Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.  When an animal dies that has been
especially close to someone here, that pet goesto Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all
of our special friends so they can run and play together.There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine,
and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to
health and vigor, those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we
remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except
for one small thing, they each miss someone very special, someone that was left behind. They all run
and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright
eyes are intnet, his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the
green grass, faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your very special friend
finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain on
your face, your hands caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting eyes, so
long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...

Picture Taken By Me - Vietnam 1966

Help me stay well to romp and play, to walk by your side, and stand ready,
willing, and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger
And, my friend, when I am very old, and I no longer enjoy good health,
hearing, and sight, please do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I am
not having fun. When the time finally comes that my days are only a painful
chore; when living day to day means nothing more than pain and confusion,
please help me go. Let me die with dignity, easily and painlessly slipping out
of this life. I know that you loved me, and you did everything in your power
to make my last years happy. I know that a merciful death was your final
gift for me, and the last kind thing that you could do for me I shall leave this
earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in
your hands.

There is no measure of loyalty greater than that shown here.

Sleep soundly soldier.

A worthy goal in life is to be as good a person as your dog thinks you are!

God bless our Military men and women and God Bless America!
