There were a lot of great canine-soldier photos and stories that popped up on Monday’s wire. But this one stood out. As Tom might say, it’s one of those times when the photo stands on its own:
A dog snuggles up to a woman with a prosthetic leg while waiting to march in the Veteran’s Day Parade on Nov. 11, in New York City. The parade included members of all four branches of service, as well as members of the FDNY, NYPD and veterans from all major conflicts that the United States has been involved with since World War Two.
