As part of an elite team of Marines, Craig Grossi was sent on his most dangerous assignment, expecting to face violence from Taliban fighters. What he didn’t expect was to meet a stray dog, with a big goofy head and little legs. Craig couldn’t help but offer some food and a pat --- and was shocked when the dog wagged his tail. From that moment on, they were inseparable. When the time came for Craig to leave Afghanistan, he knew that Fred had to leave with him no matter what. And as Craig tried to get acclimated to civilian life, Fred was there for him.
