Wounded Marine Adopts his Military Working Dog

Yesterday, LCpl Jeremy Vanhoose was officially able to adopt his Military Working Dog Imi and bring her home.

"Imi is the missing piece to Jeremy's puzzle of recovery and when I spoke to him today he was absolutely beside himself," said Vanhoose's mother on her son's Facebook support page. "Thank each of you that have held my son up in prayer since the beginning!!!!"

Vanhoose was injured on August 24, 2011 by an IED blast while on foot patrol in Sangin, Afganistan.

Kudos to the Marine Corps, the Secretary of the Navy, and the Air Force for making this happen.
