This Memoral Day please remember EVERYONE who has died in war...humans and animals. This is a video to remember, I was shocked to see elephants and others here.

The sad part is that animals do not choose to go to war, they are pushed into it.

Poor animals, they did NOT choose to be part of a human war!

My grandfather, who served in the First World War, told my father that the hardest thing to endure was the sight of the dead & dying horses and mules.
They should never be forgotten and should always be treated with the same respect all our soldiers deserve and they should be allowed to return home, just as our human heroes return home.

I started to watch but couldn't finish it. Animals have no place in the wars of humans. There has only been one war in the non human animal world and that was between chimps. I know that many have helped during war but they suffer in doing their jobs and also there are the animals who are displaced as their homes are town apart. Of course in the place there is war now animals are treated cruelly and I appreciate what soldiers are doing for them. It is only recently that most of the animals were brought back unless they were famous. They have no idea why there are in the midst of guns and bombs and loud battles. It should not be their onus to risk their lives in wars that humans can not seem to stop having. I do have great respect though for what they have done and are doing. If they are going to be in battle they deserve all the respect and honor that any human soldier would get.

Poignant, strikingly beautiful!

It's not just a case of remembering wars, which are still going on, but on ceasing war.
