DOGS SERVE AMERICA
The K-9 Corps was created March 13, 1942. Thus March 13th is the fitting date and Joe's name choice for K-9 Veterans Day.
K-9 VETERANS DAY PETITION
With new leaders in 2019, please take 20 (seconds) to sign this 2009 legislative petition to designate March 13th as a tribute to America's K-9 Corps.
Joe White contacted us in January 2009, having already achieved the first K-9 Veterans Day in his home state of Florida. Working out the details, veteran Joseph White and publisher Barbara J. Andrews agreed that in addition to Military Dogs, K-9 Veterans Day recognition should include: Border Patrol Dogs, Customs Dogs, Police Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs, and Secret Service Dogs

In Memory of Joseph White
and keeping a promise to Sally White, Joe's wife
Joe's selfless devotion to the dogs and veterans he served was inspiring. As dog lovers, we cannot allow his vision of official recognition for K-9 Veteran's Day become only a memory. His wife was unable to carry on after his death but TheDogPlace.org is dedicated to Joe's mission.
TheDogPress.com celebrates Veterans Day every 11-11. Together we can achieve a National K-9 Veterans Day. From carrier pigeons to military mules, we thank all of the animals serving our Armed Forces!
The The NetPlaces Network changed the way our Armed Services ended "service" with passage of the Military Dog Retirement Act. YOU can ask that all K-9 Veterans, military and civil, be honored for helping keep American safe.
