Veterans’ Day Celebration at the Floyd
Join us on November 9th at 11:00am to celebrate our veterans and raise awareness of the sacrifice service members and their families make year-round. This year we will be joined by two Military Working Dogs and their handlers from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.
“The capability they bring to the fight cannot be replicated by man or machine. By all measures of performance, their yield outperforms any asset we have in our inventory.” General David Petraeus
There are about 2,500 war dogs in service today, with about 700 serving at any given time overseas. Dogs have fought alongside American forces in every conflict since the Revolutionary War, but only officially since WWII. Until November 2000, military working dogs were euthanized or abandoned after retirement.
The Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center is located at 27130 102nd Ave. NW in Stanwood. For more information leave a message at 360-629-6110 or e-mail SAHSrh2@aol.com or follow us on Facebook.
