T.D.I.H March 18, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in America, history.

“K-9 corps” – what could be special about this US military unit ? Its workable if you think about it, not really a fact based question.

Slight digression now.

There are people out there who can’t start their day without their coffee, daily newspaper ( and maybe a cigarette or two in some cases ). “This Day In History” – a website from the History channel is something I imagine can sort of substitute or perhaps add to the proverbial morning coffee.

Imagine waking up every morning logging in to see what else happened that day going hundreds of years into the past. I sometimes visit this site and send a link to that day’s TDIH to people who I would otherwise send a birthday wish.

For the answer to the question – look at this lovely video about the K-9 corps. The best part of the video is the first sentence – “On this day, the US Army went to the dogs” !

A somewhat related post about America being a nation of fund-raisers 🙂 – where people won’t wait forever for the government to allocate money ( and consequently taxing you more ) but rather raise the money from volunteers. Quite a feel good thing here.

And a previous post about my dog there.
