Your Morning Cry: Marine Reunites With Combat Dog After Years of Petitioning to Keep Him Alive

U.S. Marine Corporal Megan Levy has been fighting red tape and petitioning the military to adopt her combat dog, Rex, for the past several years. Both were injured while defusing a bomb in 2006, an incident that earned Levy a Purple Heart and cost Rex his sense of smell. In an outrageous turn, the military planned to euthanize the German shepherd until Levy organized a campaign, with the help of U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer, to have him rescued. The pair will be reunited in California later this week.
