(DOGS/ANIMAL VIDEOS) This Veteran’s Day, our heartfelt appreciation goes to the men and women who have served in the U.S. military. The profound sacrifices of military families are felt in this tear-jerking video series. Each video clip captures an emotional reunion between a returning soldier and his/her dog(s).

What’s unmistakable is the intense connection between these soldiers and the dogs who loyally awaited their safe return. We salute our brave members of the Air Force, Navy, Marines, Army, and National Guard, and their canine companions! — Global Animal
