Service comes in many forms
To those that are in need
Not all heroes wear stripes or bars
Some have collars, paws and leads

From sensing risk and danger
To guarding close their team
Our four legged service partners
Are more than what they seem

How are we to thank them
For their selfless acts each day
Standing ever watchful
Putting themselves first in harm’s way

In truth they live for service
There is no higher call
To protect and keep from harm
Their brothers one and all
