With what these soldiers are going through, psychologically, emotionally, reaching out to defenseless animals commonly happens.Saving a life becomes emotionally important.

I think Allan is right. These soldiers have so many horrible memories from their tours, but they can hold on to a memory like this too.

Operation Baghdad Pups provides veterinary care and coordinates complicated logistics and transportation requirements in order to reunite these beloved pets with their service men and women back in the U.S.

Gratefully noted. It is such a pleasure to read a heartwarming story in the midst of all the ugliness that surrounds us daily. I do hope Nala is able to come home to the U.S. and find a forever loving home. What a little beauty.
