HOUSTON – There was an emotional reunion Saturday at Hobby Airport that was long overdue between a veteran and a certain golden haired beauty.
Cpl. Joaquin Aranda was pacing at the baggage claim as he was waiting to be reunited with love Donna, who he credits with keeping him and his fellow Marines safe in Afghanistan during a seven-month deployment.
Donna, a yellow Labrador, was a military dog who specialized in detecting explosives. She trained with Aranda in North Carolina, before partnering up with him overseas.
