Yellowstone is honoring our U.S. Veterans today, and all that serve in our Armed Forces, for Veterans Day with a special post for fans of the show.

For many of us, Veterans Day holds significance for family members, friends, and even ourselves. Without our U.S. servicemen and women, our country would not be here today.

And for a true, unapologetically American show like Yellowstone, it’s a poignant fit for one of the Dutton clan to be a veteran. As all fans of the show know, Kayce Dutton is a former U.S. Navy Seal. While Kayce – and his family – find great honor in his service – it also haunts him to his core.

One fateful mission in Pakistan led Kayce directly to a high-value U.S. enemy. The scum, however, wasn’t alone and was using his daughter and wife to shield himself. After he opened fire, however, Kayce had no choice but to retaliate – killing all three in the process.

These are the types of personal sacrifices, struggles, tough calls, and often demons our U.S. Veterans must live with. In short, we owe each a debt of gratitude not only for their service time, but for the life-long merits – light or dark – they must shoulder for us, and always have in order to guard their country.

Yellowstone Honors Veterans for Veterans Day

In light of this, Yellowstone is honoring all men and women who have served our country. Dedicating their main post to Veterans Day today, the show leads with Kayce himself.

“In the world of #YellowstoneTV, Kayce Dutton is a former Navy SEAL,” they start. “Today, on Veterans Day, we thank all the men and women who have served our country. Thank you.”

Knowing all of this of Kayce’s past also makes it much easier to believe why Yellowstone warns not to be an enemy of Kayce Dutton.

“Look at me… and know that I am not your friend. I am your enemy…”

These now infamous words of Kayce Dutton as he speaks to the wolves surrounding Yellowstone are bone-chilling. The Dutton’s “prodigal son” is developing quite the relationship with the ancient predators surrounding his family’s ranch.

We don’t have too long to wait until we find out how Kayce Dutton and his relationship with the wolves (of all kinds) end up, either. Yellowstone fans are set for plenty more of the show – and possibly even a film.

Season 4 hits in 2021, and Paramount is expected to announce the official release date with a trailer any day now.
