Marine Sergeant Ross Gundlach met Casey, the dog, when he was serving in Afghanistan. They were partners. However, they were separated when Sgt. Ross finished his term. When he was returning, Sgt. Ross made a promise to Casey. He told her that no matter how hard it might be, he would definitely adopt her someday.
Marines are not supposed to have a personal attachment with their fellow soldier dogs. However, Casey and Sgt. Ross became great friends in an instant. So, during this army program Sgt. Ross wished to make his plea to the authorities to let him adopt Casey.
Sgt. Ross was all prepared to make the speech that would touch everyone’s heart and grant him his wish. However, what he didn’t know was the surprise his fellow soldiers had planned for him.
Watch what surprise Sgt. Ross gets in this army ceremony in the video below. This is a very touching story with a fantastic ending that may even bring a tear or two – joyful tears, that is — what an extraordinary tale of friendship and loyalty.
