Semper Fi


The parents of a U.S. Marine killed in Afghanistan are adopting the bomb-sniffing dog who the military says loyally rushed to their son’s side when he was fatally shot.

Darrell and Kathy Rusk were expected to take home Eli on Thursday. The black Labrador is being retired from military service following the death of Pfc. Colton Rusk

Wasn’t he a beautiful boy? God bless Colton. Semper Fi, Marine.
Good dog, Eli. God bless you.
