Hi, everyone! I'd just like to take a minute to remember all of the animals and humans that serve our country.
On top of that, I'd like to honor Tiddles, Faith, PFC Hammer, and all the other cats who have found themselves in the midst of war.
Tiddles: Tiddles served with the HMS Victorious, the British aircraft carrier, in the 1940's. It's estimated that he sailed for over 30,000 miles.
Faith: On the morning of September 6, 1940, Faith moved herself and her single kitten to the upper floor of the basement at her residence, sensing something strange- just one day before London was bombed. She and her kitten were rescued by Father Henry Ross, and she was later awarded a medal for "Steadfast Courage in the Battle of London."
PFC Hammer: PFC Hammer found himself at home with a U.S. Army Troop in Iran, who served as their food specialist (keeping the mice away from their meals) and was made an honorary member. With the help from several organizations, Hammer was brought to the US, and now lives with his old friend, Sergeant Rick Bousefield.
Let us honor our service cats, men, and women today, for we might not be here without them.
