Who doesn’t love a good reunion story? This one will pull at your heartstrings more than most! Nick Pierzchalski flew Blackhawk helicopters as a medevac pilot overseas in Iraq. While he was deployed, he met Airys, a 1-year-old shepherd mix. The two became fast friends, and Nick even built her a kennel in his units hangar.
Airys increased the morale of all the soldiers she met. When it was time for Nick to go home, he wasn’t about to leave the only bright spot in his life during his deployment! Watch the video below to see how Nick was able to enlist the help of the SPCA International to get Airys flown home to Florida!
