Originally published for Veterans Day on Nov. 11, 2010. Just as 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.

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.
