The bonds of war are not easily broken. For one Marine, Sgt. Jacob Fisher, he was on a seven-month deployment in Afghanistan when he came across his best friend. Fisher was in the Bagram region of Afghanistan when he found a puppy.
The two immediately bonded, and Fisher took him in, knowing that the little dog would not be able to survive on his own. The environment was too dangerous and rough for him. Fisher named the pup Jax. The two of them bonded but after the deployment was over, Fisher had a rough road ahead getting Jax home with him.
The two had to be separated for a period of three months as Fisher did everything in his power to bring him home. Jax had helped Fisher through a dark time during his deployment, and the soldier wanted to return the favor by giving the pooch a forever home.
When the reunion was finally possible, it was a very tender moment. The two had a lot of catching up to do. Once they saw each other, it was as though the time hadn’t passed. They picked up right where they left off.
Watch all the love they had for each other in the clip below:
