A Virginia Marine veteran and his military dog have finally been reunited! The Marine Corps got priority of K9 Dini when Chad Migkins left Japan, and left Migkins wondering if he would ever see his partner again. But thanks to Mission K9, he won’t have to wonder anymore. Thank you both for your service!

Welcome Home!

A 5-year-old girl in Mississippi had a wonderful surprise at school this past week. Her mother was deployed to Kuwait for six months and returned home, trading in her Army fatigues for the school mascot’s uniform. It’s a wonderful moment you just have to see for yourself!
