Ollie turned into quite the popular pet! He loved getting petted and would come up to the soldiers and cuddle up to them. Ken said the following:
“He was there when we left on our missions, he was there when we got back.”
He gave the base a huge morale boost, and was a good counter to all the bad things that would happen. You couldn’t help but form a grin on your face when Ollie was around.
Somehow, everyone pulled together and made it happen! Ollie made the long trip to the states where his new home awaited, as did his familiar buddy, and now doggy daddy, Ken!
