#NipClub Pays Tribute to our Heroes On Memorial Day

THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2012

Next Monday is Memorial Day - a day when America pays tribute to the members of the armed forces who put their lives on the line to safeguard the freedoms that Americans hold dear.

American service personnel are currently deployed in a number of countries around the world, and on the high seas. Their duties range from safeguarding emerging democracies to working to rid the world's oceans of the scourge of modern-day pirates. In some areas they're helping to keep warring factions apart - in others, offering assistance to those made homeless by wars or natural disasters. We remember, too, that those freedoms that we love and often take for granted were first won and then protected by the valor of those who had to take up arms for their sake.

Not everyone agrees with every deployment service personnel are asked to undertake, and celebrating Memorial Day at #NipClub doesn't imply support for, or opposition to, any political decision. It's about showing appreciation and support for the service personnel who place themselves in danger to give safety to others, and who live with conflict in the hope of bringing peace.

As anipals, we're very conscious of the families, and especially their non-human members, that they leave behind. We think, too, of those animals in far-off places who befriend them - some of whom we've watched on YouTube or the TV news as they're brought across the world to be reunited with a serviceman or woman and given a new fur-ever home in the USA.

So, this Thursday, #NipClub is celebrating Memorial Day. As always, we'll have pawesome noms and drinks, and great music. There'll be lots of fun and laughter, and we'll honor the men and women of the armed forces, and the animals who share their lives. Come celebrate with us!

While our hearts fill with pride, and our eyes fill with tears for those heroes who have made that ultimate sacrifice for all of us, we'd also like to make sure everyone remembers the local heroes who make our world a better place.

We'd like to honor all the firemen and policemen and emergency assistance personnel who risk their lives to keep us safe or help us in times of need.

In the past few years there has been a huge improvement in making sure animals get rescued and cared for during emergencies and disasters. And these heroes risk their lives day after day to keep everyone safe.

Thanks to everyone who helps keep our animals (and those humans of ours) safe!!

So let's grill up some noms, and crack open a cold one, light up a fine nip cigar and salute all of those who help anipals!!! If you'd like to dress up your Avatar consider coming as your own hero!! Whether it's a soldier, fireman, policeman, an animal rescue worker, maybe your hero is your human who saved you from a bad situation, maybe it's your Grandpa who risked or sacrificed his life to give us the freedoms we have today. Maybe it's a friend who was their for you in your darkest hour. Whoever your hero is, let us know.

If you dont have the ability to dress up as your favorite hero, please contact @RealFakeGator of #NipClub Outfitters. He, and his staff will make you the avi that you desire.

Of course your own natural fur is ALWAYS in fashion at #NipClub!!

We will be having a weekend blog post "Who was at #Nipclub Thursday night". If you would like to be included send your @twitter name and avatar to Email Us
