Army Specialist Ken Wyrsch made a very unusual friend when he was deployed to an army base in Iraq. Wyrsch and his soldier friends named the dog Ollie and adopted him. He now comforts U.S. forces in Iraq. He also turned out to be the camp’s mascot eventually.
“He was there when we left on our missions, he was there when we got back,” said Wyrsch
The troops ended up falling deeply in love with Ollie. So, when the camp was announced to shut down soon and they were going to be disbanded, they knew they had to do something about Ollie. They couldn’t leave Ollie behind, given that he was in grave danger in Iraq.
