A Georgia National Guardsman has been reunited with some furry friends he picked up in Afghanistan.
While on tour, Chris Duke made friends with three stray dogs: Sasha, Target and Rufus.
One night in February, a suicide bomber tried to blow up Duke's barracks, but the dogs attacked him causing the intruder to blow himself up before he could kill the soldiers inside. Sasha had to be put down, but Rufus and Target were nursed back to health.
After returning home, Duke wrote the group "Hope for the Warriors" requesting the two dogs be brought to the states. Soon a Facebook group was formed and $21,000 were raised.
Rufus and Target were reunited with Duke Thursday.
