Memorial Day

On the 24th of November, 2004, the Animals in War memorial was unveiled in Park Lane, London, England. The memorial was erected to honor the millions of animals who gave of their health and lives in service to humans during war time. The sculptor intended to include all animals that served, and so, alongside the dogs and horses and mules you will find images of glow worms, camels, and elephants. The inscription on the Memorial reads:

Animals in War
This memorial is dedicated to all the animals that served and died alongside British and Allied forces in wars and campaigns throughout time.
They had no choice.

As we remember and give thanks to our service men and women this Memorial Day, perhaps you may want to take some time to remember all who sacrificed.

Happy Memorial Day
