Such an awesome photo!
"A small puppy wondered up to U.S. Marines from Alpha Company, 1st Battalion 6th Marines, in Marjah, Afghanistan on *****. After following the Marines numerous miles, a soft hearted Marine picked the puppy up and carried the puppy in his drop pouch. "

I couldn't help but notice that the puppy has a makeshift paracord leash around his neck!
