Troops Reunited With Canine Friends From Afghanistan

An emotional reunion took place Wednesday at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.

14 dogs from Afghanistan arrived and were greeted by the U.S. troops who grew to love them while deployed in Afghanistan. A joint effort between NOWZAD and American Airlines brought the dogs to the US, and the hugs and smiles said it all.

CBS 2′S Cindy Hsu was there to share in the joy when the stray dogs finally made it home.

  1. My morning started extra bright today, what an uplifting piece!
    I love that this new rescue org. is concentrating on these homeless pups living in such a grievous environment, to save them and hopefully help heal the soldiers through all they have experienced.
    Breaks my heart every time I hear of a soldier’s suicide, to make it home safe but not sound and have no hope, they deserve every ounce of assistance and possibility of overcoming such pain.

    • I could not say it any better Sasha. They are so innocent and would be devoted to whoever cared for and loved them. I read another comment about “who saved who”…excellent question.

  2. I BELIEVE THAT WARM LOVING COMMITTED DOGS CAN HELP MORE THAN HUMANS TO REHABILITATE THOSE MILITARY PERSONS HAVING SERVED IN THE DIFFERENT WARS ON OUR BEHALF………IT TAKES THE SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN A LONG TIME TO BE REHABILITATED ….THIS IS THE VERY LEAST WE SHOULD DO.

    I WOULD GLADLY DONATE TO ENSURE THIS HAPPENS AS A PART OF OUR APPRECIATION OF WHAT THEY ALL WENT THROUGH
