Army buddies, soldier and dog, reunite at airport

  • 140

Army sergeant Tom Hansen looks nervous. He’s at the airport in Boise, Idaho, awaiting the arrival of an Army buddy he hasn’t seen in two years. “It’s like a part of me has been missing,” Hansen told NBC News. “Getting her back now, it’ll make me whole again.” When Taylor arrives, she runs straight into Hansen’s arms for a hug.

Their reunion is full of wagging tails and loving rubs and scratches — Taylor is a newly retired military working dog and Hansen was her partner in Afghanistan. He protected her during firefights and she protected him from numerous bombs. As a team, they were so effective at protecting American lives that Taylor had a Taliban bounty placed on her.
