Just a heads up to tune in to ABC World News Tonight with Charlie Gibson tomorrow evening, Tuesday Dec. 8, at 6:30 eastern. They will be airing the story of the Pilots N Paws transport for two dogs from Afghanistan that two U.S. soldiers rescued while on patrol. Their families raised the funds to bring these dogs home and our pilots jumped in to get them to the families. Then Cpl, now Sgt. Michael Lemmons will be featured along with two of our pilots Jerry Sica and John Lee. Michael is home on leave now and reunited with "Ally", who he found in a cave while on patrol in Afghanistan.
The other beautiful dog, Delilah, and her soldier Matt, will be reunited in January when Matt returns home to Texas from Afghanistan. Another one of our pilots, Jon Miller (thank you Jon!) who is also currently serving in the military and presently stateside, volunteered to foster Delilah for a week and then fly her to transfer her over to his Dad, also a pilot, for the last leg of her flight home to Texas. This is truly a heartwarming story and a team effort by three of our pilots and a guest pilot Jon's Dad! I look forward to seeing the final version!
