Ann & Eileen Salute All Veterans at Col. Potter!

Anne, a 14 lb., 5 year old Black Brindle Female

Eileen, a 16 lb., 5 year old Black Brindle Female

Veterans’ Day is a day to honor and salute all the men and women who have served in the military - the people that endure the atrocities and fight so that we all can enjoy freedom and our liberties.  Many little boys grew up playing with GI Joe and wanting to be the brave soldiers marching into battle.  Not to be outdone by the boys, many girls have also set their sights on serving their country.  These brave soldiers of war have touched all of us, spanning different generations, different wars, and in different ways.  On this Veterans’ Day, be sure to salute and say “Thank you!” to all veterans for being our heroes.

This Veteran’s Day weekend, two little girls, who are a different type of veteran, received their honorable discharge papers.  They are now transitioning to a civilian life with Col. Potter, one filled with Freedom!  These two are named in honor of two women who have served in the armed forces and made major contributions to the nation they serve:

Army General Ann E. Dunwoody became the first female four-star general and is currently Commanding General of United States Army Material Command.

Commander Eileen Collins was the first female Space Shuttle Commander as she returned the Space Shuttle program to flight after the earlier Columbia disaster.

As a Salute to All Women who have and are serving in the military, I am proud to introduce:

Ann – a 5 year old Black Brindle Female, weighing 14 lbs.

Eileen – a 5 year old Black Brindle, weighing 16 lbs.

A big thanks to Sheri K. for her help in getting these two girls and acting as their "USO" their first night when the transport was running behind and we missed getting them to the vet before they closed for the day.  Sheri graciously gave them bunks for the night, several baths to get the dirt of battle off of them, and high quality rations to fill their empty tummies.

Ann and Eileen deserve the Purple Heart for their bravery, but we think they will settle for a wonderful happily ever after.  Let's give a big CP salute to Ann and Eileen and all Veterans!
