Today is Veteran's Day. This special day we are saluting the dogs of war. Throughout history dogs have played a large part in the freedom of our nation. Chips is a great example.
Spirited and quick to learn, Chips served bravely as a tank guard dog, traveling throughout Europe, Africa, and Italy with General Patton's Seventh Army.
On one occasion, Chips alerted to an impending ambush. Then, with a phone cable attached to his collar, Chips ran back to base, dodging gunfire so that the endangered platoon could establish a communications line and ask for the backup they so desperately needed.
To further salute the dogs of war, we put together a Squidoo lens in their honor. Visit the lens and learn more about these wonderful, brave canines.
