Deployed Soldiers Get Peace Of Mind For Their Pets

When a soldier is deployed on duty, what happens to their pets? What if they don't have a family to care for them while they are gone?


No pet should ever be surrendered to a shelter due to a military commitment and that's where Dogs on Deployment comes in. They are a national 501(c)(3) non-profit providing a central network for military members to find volunteers willing to board their pets while they are deployed or have other service commitments, making them unable to temporarily care for their pets.

"We're there to help the military services members keep their family together with their pets," said Mike, a Dogs on Deployment volunteer. "It's a military organization and we're here to help the service members."

The organization began in 2011 when a couple who are in the Navy and the Marine Corp had to be away at the same time and didn't know where to take their pet. Realizing other service members may be experiencing the same predicament, they started Dogs on Deployment to allow people to serve knowing their pets are all right.

"It's 100% volunteer and growing everyday," Executive Director Debbie Gaskel told us.

Additionally, Dogs on Deployment promotes responsible, life-long pet ownership in the military community. The organization also sponsors events throughout the country, spreading information on the cause and recruiting volunteers. They want to get the word out to the armed forces that they don't have to sell their pet; their furry family member can be waiting for them when they get home.

These service men and women are doing something selfless for their country... the least we can do is care for their pets!

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
