I think it's marvellous that she survived the war, came home, and lived to be a good age. I just hate old war pics with dead horses littering the battlefield as they make me think of men shanghaied into service: not their fight, but they suffer the consequences. Sentimental, but that's me.

It is about time the military animals were recognized for their bravery. Rather late for me but once again the Korean War is lost to history. My step-dad was a Radio Corp man on the front line in Korean. He would not talk much about his 2 years there. But it is on his headstone that he served.
