This Dog Is Dead Today. But 50 Soldiers Lived Because He Had The Heart Of A Lion
Hero is a term often used lightly, but in the case of Sgt. Chris Duke, he fits every possible definition of the word. When he was serving in Afghanistan, Sgt. Duke was doing much more than just defending democracy. He was making friends with the locals, three stray dogs, Sasha, Target and Rufus, that ended up saving his life.
When a suicide bomber tried to attack his base, his new friends started barking and biting the attacker, eventually saving 50 lives.
Sgt. Duke showed the gratitude for the canine heroes by doing something that will melt your heart.
