Decorated War Veterans Visit Capitol Hill, Sit, Stay

Warrior dogs get a warrior’s welcome.

1. A vast majority of Capitol Hill briefings are pretty boring.

 

The people who show up for them either have to be there or accidentally wandered into the room and got stuck.

And all were there to celebrate one thing…

3. …Warrior Dogs.
