The Beautiful Friendship Between a Marine and The Stray Dog He Met on the Battlefield

Marine Craig Grossi was stationed in Afghanistan when he came across an extremely friendly stray dog. The two immediately connected and Craig knew he couldn’t leave the pup, which he named Fred.

Craig (and Fred!) came on the show to discuss this daring rescue, and how Fred’s unwavering positivity has helped him deal with his PTSD.
