Former Marine Cpl. and Purple Heart recipient Megan Leavey and combat dog Sgt. Rex participate in a ceremony at Yankee Stadium before the game between the New York Yankees and the Seattle Mariners on May 13, 2012 in the Bronx borough of New York City. Through two tours of duty in Iraq, Sgt. Rex was by Leavey's side. The pair worked more than 100 missions searching for roadside bombs, were injured in the line of duty and went through physical therapy together. After five years of waiting for Rex's service to end and filling out paperwork, Leavey finally won approval to bring the 11-year-old German Shepherd home.(Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images)
