Former Marine raises funds to bring canine friend home from Afghanistan

This is a great story. When a Marine departed Afghanistan in October, the dog he had befriended tried to climb on board the helicopter

Through the Nowzad organization, he had to raise $4,000 to cover the cost of transporting Bolt to the US. After a quarantine period, the two buddies will be reunited.

ABC News reports Shaun Duling made friends with Bolt and nursed him back to health, before all dogs were ordered out of the base. But when the dog ran back to the base, the commander allowed him back on base.

I love stories about compassion. Our country and the word really needs more – a lot more – stories of compassion.
