this story always warms my heart
<3 <3 <3 A small puppy wandered up to U.S. Marines from Alpha Company, 1st Battalion 6th Marines, in Marjah, Afghanistan on ******. After following the Marines numerous miles, a soft hearted Marine picked the puppy up and carried the puppy in his drop pouch. I <3 this.
Oh my heart........4 year-old Paige Bennethum really, really didn’t want her daddy to go to Iraq. So much that when Army Reservist Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum lined up in formation at his deployment this July, she couldn’t let go. No one had the heart to pull her away.
