WHAT I COULD NOT VERBALIZE TO ANYONE, YOU SENSED IT
The war changed us both, it took me to many dark places, where I was lost and had no purpose, just blank and unfeeling, it was not a life worth living. What I could not verbalize or explain to anyone, you sensed it. Your unconditional love and understanding was able to reach deep into my heart and soul and find me. You saved me with your love and helped me rise above myself and I am eternally grateful. We both proudly served, but you continue the mission and gladly serve by my side. I cannot imagine life without you. I love so many things about you: your big stinky paws, your graying face, your velvet soft ears and coat, your amazing brown eyes, your incessant licking and kisses, your exuberance every second of every day when you are with me wondering when we will play Frisbee or fetch or where our next adventure will be. I even love how when we are out and about at different places, you are the one everyone wants to talk to – they don’t even know how special you really are and how much of a true patriot and hero you are. I laugh knowing that you have a better social life than me and I don’t even mind that most people remember your name more than mine. Your love keeps me safe, and steady, and you are always by my side. You have my heart and my soul forever and for that I will be ALWAYS FAITHFUL! (Semper Fidelis) “
