Last year, on December 25th, Sergeant Peter Neesley died in combat while he was serving his country abroad. He was still a young man, at just 28 years of age, and he had a lot of people he sadly left behind. One person who was especially struck by this tragedy was Carey, Peter’s sister, whom he was very close with.
Carey and Peter were always very close, like best friends, and in the touching video above, Carey recalls and narrates how Peter was always a kind and cheerful person who loved animals, and that’s why he surprised no one when he rescued a female dog and four of her puppies he found while stationed in Iraq. He took the entire canine family in and they became his base’s adoptive pets! He and the guys at the base cared for them and kept them safe, just like they would a dog at home.
When Peter died in combat, Carey decided to do whatever it took to rescue the dogs and bring them overseas to the United States, so that she could adopt them and fulfill what her brother would have wanted the most. It proved to be quite difficult, but what happened next will make your heart melt in an instant.
