HARLEY EXPLAINS “VETERAN’S DAY” TO LEO

By Monday, November 12, 2012 4 Permalink

 


HARLEY: A Veteran is any person, who served honorably on active duty in the armed forces of the United States.
LEO: And our “doodle dad” did that?
HARLEY: “Abso-doodley!” Right out of college. Did you know he used to jump out of airplanes?…

LEO: What for?
HARLEY: Not really sure, I just remember seeing the pictures.
LEO: What did he do after he hit the ground?
HARLEY: Lived in the woods with the rest of the people that jumped with him.
LEO: Is that why he likes to take us to the park all the time, because he misses the woods?

HARLEY: Could be.
LEO: What else did he do?
HARLEY: Let’s see…
He would get these things called “awards” – they’re like treats…

He once went to Tiffany’s school and talked to little two legged people about life as a soldier…

He also took extra “doodle care” of the soldiers…

He prepared young men…

AND women to be the “best” that they could be…

He moved to Washington DC and worked along side some incredible people from the White House…

LEO: Wow! How cool was that?
HARLEY: I know right? It was “doodle cool”, his dad was very proud of him…

LEO: I bet he was. I’m proud, and I wasn’t even there! I’ve got the greatest doodle dad in the whole wide world…

HARLEY: Yes you do! And he – like countless others selflessly made the sacrifice to protect this great nation and keep us ALL safe!
LEO: Veterans are really special people huh?
HARLEY: Yup, they sure are. Very, very special people!

Appreciate a veteran today with a smile, a handshake or even a hug. I know we will! Thanks for reading…
