PORT JEFFERSON STATION, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — It was a hero’s welcome home Wednesday for eight canine crusaders.
Five U.S. soldiers were reunited with Sheba and her 5-month-old puppies dubbed the “Magnificent Seven” in Port Jefferson Station. The pack became a part of their military family while the soldiers were serving in Afghanistan, CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez reported.
“When you come off of a mission, it was really nice to go out there and feed them and just have them there to brighten up your day and get your mind off things you’d done or seen,” Sgt. Travis Burton, of Cincinnati, said.
