This post originally ran on Veterans Day 2010. No less affecting today.

Inspired by the smart folks at mental_floss, we've put together a little video in observance of Veterans Day: a compilation of excited dogs greeting their owners upon their return from basic training or service overseas.

You will not be judged if you happen to be sitting in a particularly dusty room.

There's plenty more video in the mental_floss post. Check it out, if you have the time to sit through even more doggy affection. Happy Veterans Day, everyone.
