This is a short film, that contains footage of animals who have been used to serve in conflict situation, there are other films made, but frankly they are hard to watch, this one explains about the animals and animals you wouldn't think went to war

For MM Marilyn, & Sally, as well as anyone who knows animals have been largely forgotten re- their roles in times of war / conflict.
-
please also create awareness of what happens to some dogs retiring from the "forces" as well as other working dogs retiring,
I am sure this is not just happening in the UK, let's see what we here in care2 can do to create a fuss and awareness of this " betrayal of their loyalty" -

One can wear a purple poppy paw to remember the animals who died in the wars. To find out about it and where to purchase these poppy paws go to Poppy Color Alternatives

Thank you for posting. The purple poppy is to remember all animals in war, those who have no choice, and was originally introduced by Animal Aid UK.

kind regards, Joan.

Noted. Thanks for posting this & forwarding, Wendy. Thanks to Marilyn, too. How sad, the poor innocent animals had no choice. They, along with the men & women in the military, will never be forgotten, and will always be honored for their sacrifice.
Here's a live link for Wendy's link in her above comment.

Just clicked on the link, how cruel, destroying the military service animals! They served their country, and that's what they get for it??!!? So despicable.

This live link for Wendy's link might be better.
More than three dozen UK military dogs put down over the last year

The Purple Poppy - Poem by Janice Walkden

When you remember those who fought
do you give the animals any thought?
The ones whose lives were claimed to serve
the pain and fear they did not deserve!

Without the raise of a hoof or paw
to give consent for the things they saw
Such bravery from those of animal kind
The Purple Poppy is worn today to remind.

They had no choice, the choice was made!
alongside their masters their part they played
and without the raise of a hoof or paw
Their lives were taken in the human war.

We'll never forget...
