As our Nation takes the time to pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the men and women who defend our freedoms this Veterans Day, puppy mill survivor, Miss Muffet, would like to tell you about two heroes from the Greatest Generation.
Please enjoy Miss Muffet's story and pictures below:
|Miss Muffet was saved from a puppy mill in May 2013. |
She is shown here with the medals of Bill Walthers.
"Recently, along with my new forever dad, I flew to South Prairie, Washington to personally attend a 90th birthday party for my dad's twin brothers who fought in World War II. William and Robert Walthers, born in 1923, served our country during World War ll. One brother, a pilot flew bombing missions over Europe while the other brother served as a right gunner in the Pacific.
Prior to WWII, William Walthers spent 1,000 hours flying B-17s which led him to become one of the youngest Squadron Leaders during the war. William piloted 30 bombing missions in Europe and participated in the liberation of Paris. While William was in Europe, Robert was stationed on Tinian Island and completed 6 missions as a right gunner. Robert also witnessed the Enola Gay before it left for its mission to Hiroshima. After WWII, William went on to serve in the Korean war where he earned the Distinguished Flying Cross medal.
As much as these twin brothers love their country, they love dogs even more and were thrilled to welcome me into their family. And I'm thrilled they are my uncles! My dad is their baby brother, Paul, age 82.
Uncle Bill and Uncle Bob would like to spread the word about the horrors of puppy mills so one day all the dogs living in puppy mills are liberated and able to live in homes as the free and the brave. Please be sure to share their story so more people know to always adopt and never buy a dog from a pet store. Thank you!"
Love, Miss Muffet
