US Soldier is Reunited with Dog he Met While Serving in Afghanistan

o-KEVIN-BRADY-570

We’ve all seen the heartwarming videos of when soldiers come home to see their children and dogs.   All of them bring tears to our eyes.  But it’s not often where the reverse type of story holds true.  But for US soldier Kevin Brady, that’s exactly what happened.   Brady, who is a National Guardsmen from California first met dog Bailey while he was serving in Afghanistan last fall.  Bailey, was then an 8 week old puppy.

Baily was following around the unit but particularly took to Brady.  When Kevin returned home to the U.S. in May without the dog he was upset.  To get Bailey back, he reached out to Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Guardians of Rescue in Long Island, N.Y, News 12 reported. The organization helped raise $5,000 to have the pup — now 7 months old — vaccinated and flown from Afghanistan to New York.

Amazingly the two were reunited on July 4th.   In the emotional reunion video, Bailey and Brady appear overwhelmed with joy.  They then made their trip back to California.
