Everyone knows that our brave men and women of the military put their lives on the line day in and day out to protect their fellow Americans.
However, as we’ve seen time and time again, our selfless soldiers don’t just stop there. They are often quick to help people of all walks of life while deployed on their missions, either on or off duty; And the following amazing video proves that no life is too insignificant for them.
After seeing so much destruction and hardship while on deployment in Afghanistan, you might think our U.S. Army soldiers wouldn’t bat an eyelid at a small animal in need, but that’s exactly what the heroes in this incredible clip from Team Farce on YouTube. An Army Colonel and Major who have been honored with silver stars for their gallantry in action against the enemy show us civilians they are not above the smallest acts of kindness when they saved a newborn puppy dying under Afghanistan’s sweltering hot sun.
Reijerson and Barnett, as well as one guard and another soldier who adds some pretty hilarious commentary from behind the camera, stop to help the small pup after realizing the saline solution they had in their first aid kits could save the animal’s life. The poor pooch would have undoubtedly died in just a day or so in the heat, but now he’s got the second chance he deserved from the start.
While we aren’t sure what the soldiers did with the tiny pup, since many soldiers fall in love with the dogs they meet overseas, we’re willing to bet one of them found a good home for the little sweetheart.
