Thanksgiving Surprise: Marine Reunited With His Adopted Stray Dog From Afghanistan

When Corporal Ward Van Alstine of the United States Marine Corps returned home for Thanksgiving, there was more than just a delicious turkey dinner waiting for him. The Marine was reunited with Chloe, a stray from Afghanistan he had taken in as his own during his last deployment. The Marine’s sister worked with a non-profit group to have Chloe flown from Afghanistan to the U.S.
