Dog and Soldier Reunions That Steal Our Heart Every Time

These emotional reunions between soldiers and their best friends are some of our favorites. The 7 military reunions we identified celebrate the amazing bond these families have with their dogs.

Heartwarming doesn't even scratch the surface. The "welcome home" greetings from these dogs may have you running for an entire box of Kleenex.

One way to celebrate veterans everywhere is to hire a veteran to help you out at work or a military spouse. They need our support in every way possible.
