The LazyPaw staff spent their Memorial Day at the DFW National Cemetery placing flags on the gravestones in remembrance of the many fallen veterans. More than 1,300 volunteers joined them, including three new groups to the Memorial Day tradition. Volunteers adorned the gravesites, adding a patriotic touch to each and every gravestone that resulted in the cemetery grounds being covered in red, white, and blue.

LazyPaw Animal Hospitals came out and supported the event with about 70 North Texas Military Association (NTXMA) volunteers. The NTXMA is a group of military veterans and their friends and family who are dedicated to ensuring that veterans get the recognition they deserve and the help they need. Many of the veteran members of NTXMA serve as mentors to help the new veterans earn degrees and achieve a higher education. NTXMA is currently working with Student Veterans of America’s Collin College Chapter to help more than 1,400 veterans enroll in college.
