The real journey begins. Just drove by Freedom Service Dogs. Gander is with his trainer at home. But got to meet a former prison inmate who now works with the dogs here full time. Lots of freeing going on here.

Waiting at the McDonald’s near the animal hospital. He knows something is up today. He normally likes Dr. Keene. But, today G won’t even look at him.

Just some swollen gums. I brush his teeth daily but want to make sure everything is OK.

Visited the site where Ben James’ grandfather rests.
Then met with the assistant director Dan Phillips USAF retired Colonel. We talked about dogs in the National Cemeteries. Only SDs are allowed. There’s been a little counterfeiting to date.
Spoke to a woman putting a Halloween pumpkin on her husband’s grave and at the urging of Col. Phillips we visited the final resting place for Hero, Michael Joseph Blassie who was interred at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier before DNA identify his remains.
We also viewed the memorial for the Puerto Princessa POW massacre. 150 prisoners were forced into three tunnels and then gasoline poured in. Those not killed in explosions that ensued were bayoneted or shot by Japanese soldiers as they ran out of the caves on fire.
Finally we visited the site where famed Cardinals announcer John “Jack” Buck is buried.
A somber and special #fetch22 Small world dept: the Colonel knows my best friend from the military!

Eat your hearts out Mark Racas and Peg Dixon.
