Army reserve Sgt. Tracy McKithern rescued a scruffy little stray puppy in Iraq during her yearlong deployment there. Then another deployment pulled her away from the pup for a few months.
But finally, they were reunited on American soil. Tracy connected with the puppy the very first minute after seeing her.
Says Tracy: “She is the sweetest little soul. She came up to me immediately, probably hungry, but gentle. I think she was looking for love more than anything else.”
We love a good soldier homecoming reunion! This one is between U.S. Army Reserve Sgt. Tracy McKithern and her dog Erby whom she rescued while deployed in Iraq. Erby was flown from Iraq to Tampa while Tracy was deployed again so it’s been a long seven months since they’ve been together. Welcome to Tampa, Erby, and welcome home, Sgt. Tracy McKithern!Posted by Tampa International Airport on Wednesday, 16 May 2018
