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.






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.

In Memory of Joseph White

and keeping a promise to Sally White, Joe's wife


DOGS SERVE EVERY DAY, ON BOTH LAND AND SEA.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 is dedicated to Joe's mission. 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.
