During the appearance in Herndon, Virginia, the GOP nominee was speaking about the suicide rate among military veterans, blaming the Veterans Administration for the upsetting epidemic:

"People are killing themselves waiting on line because they have days and days before what could be a simple procedure, a simple prescription, and the wait is so long, they can't take it."

And, believe it or not, that ignorant, oversimplification wasn't even the most offensive thing he said on the sensitive subject.

Former Marine Wants To Adopt Her Retired Military Dog

Filed under: InspirationDogAmazing

Megan Levy is a former marine with two tours of Iraq under her belt.

She became a handler for bomb sniffing dogs.

But when she retired, her dog, Rex, didn't.

After serving some more, Rex eventually came down with a condition that would lead to him having to be put to sleep if he couldn't be adopted.

So Megan has been fighting through the bureaucracy and red tape to try and get her dog to her.

Due to the power of this story (and the fact she received a purple heart) a senator, the owner of the Yankees and many others have stepped in to try and get her dog to her.

So amazing!

Dog Reunited With Wounded Soldier Who Rescued Him Overseas

Filed under: InspirationDogRescueAmazing


Donny Eslinger was a soldier in Afghanistan.

One day, he found a tiny little puppy wandering the streets and bought him for three cigarettes.

After him carrying out in his backpack, the two were inseparable, sharing their meals together and living back at Donny's checkpoint.

Then one day, Donny was caught in a mortar blast and received a puncture wound to the chest, head injuries, several broken ribs and lost his spleen.

When he was rushed to a military hospital to undergo life saving procedures, his dog, Smoke, was left behind!

Eventually Donny was moved back home and received a purple heart from President Obama.

He is now recovering at a hospital in Maryland.

After five months of trying, his fellow soldiers were able to finally get Smoke back to the US.

So Donny's dad surprised him with a visit to the hospital, and brought a special friend with him.


His dad said:

"This dog Smoke will help him heal even faster. He's a strong kid and he's done remarkably well."

Donny is expected to make a full recovery.

Yay! Happy ending!
