Veterans Day 2014: Our Salute To Our Two And Four-Legged Veterans

In the last five + years, we've done quite a few posts about our country's current soldiers, both two and four-legged, as well as our veterans.

In 2012, for example, we discussed the history of "Armistice Day" and featured the top five picks of PolicyMic.com for the top dog soldiers since WWI.

Last year, we discussed the role that service dogs play to improve the lives of veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

For this year's salute to all of our veterans, we're thrilled to take a bit of a detour from canines, and look at the role horses (in this case, wild mustangs)  play in helping returning vets rebuild their lives. Take a few minutes to watch this fascinating video from CBS News and let us know what you think. Typically, Parental Unit is not in favor of domesticating wild animals (even wild horses), but in this case, it helps the horses out, too. The Bureau of Land Management's policies have been less than wild mustang friendly lately, and at least this not-for-profit program spares their lives.

P.S. We've tried deperately to embed this CBS video like we usually do, but apparently, Blogger cannot embed Flash videos...

Sadly for some reason it would not play but horses are a very real part of war of old and particularly yesterday in memory of those who fell in WW1. Have a Wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly
