Cover Story: Rescued dogs help deserving veterans

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - They really are our heroes.  They're back from the front lines coping with the wounds of war.

And now these battle scarred and brave soldiers have a new dog in this fight.

On this Veteran's Day, we're talking about linking man's best friend to men and women who've served our country.

There's a term in the military called battle buddies.

When you go off to war you're assigned a buddy - someone who'll stick closer than a brother.  You go out together, you come back together.

This is a the story about a buddy who's by your side when you come back home.
