“My son Matthew went into the Air Force and had a dog named Tucker that he was very close to. Unfortunately, Tucker passed away while Matt was in basic. A few months later we got a new puppy and named him Ace. Matt came home on leave for 2 ½ weeks and met Ace. He then went to Kuwait for 6 months and came back, and I wanted to see (knowing Matthew for only a couple of weeks) if Ace would remember him. So, when he came home, I put Ace out on the deck and had Matt sit on the floor. This is the video.”
