Before Franklin D. Roosevelt was President of the U.S., he served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy. Since today is Veteran’s Day, I thought it would be a good opportunity to thank all those who serve our country.
During FDR’s presidency, he got a Scottie named Fala who was a constant companion, frequently photographed, and the subject of a famous FDR speech.
Fala attended FDR’s funeral and lived out the remainder of his life with Eleanor Roosevelt. He is buried next to the Roosevelts in the rose garden at their home.
