There are few things that are more satisfying than being in the right place at the right time for the perfect photo. The photographers who just so happened to be at the airport in Indianapolis on this fateful day can definitely attest to that.
10 soldiers were not passing through this airport at the time. Typically, this wouldn’t be cause for picture taking but this was a different sort of occasion. These soldiers had two additional soldiers in tow….of the four-legged variety! One of the soldiers was exhausted (understandably so) and decided to catch some quick shut-eye.
However, it’s not always easy to nap in the airport. It’s bright, loud, and there’s always the fear that someone will steal our luggage. However, this soldier definitely did have to worry about that last point! One of the dogs in their group was quick to protect him while he slept.
According to the photographer, it was one of the most touching things he had ever experienced in his life
The little battle buddy took their duties very seriously and went above and beyond to make sure that their friend was safe. That’s all that anyone can ask from a bodyguard. These dogs are trained to protect their humans at all times, at all costs, and this is very evident when you see the photo.
Everyone understands that being a soldier is difficult, given the fact that they must ensure that everyone is safe and well. The soldiers were discovered sleeping on the floor, and the best part is that they did not have to worry about anyone stealing their belongings.
Dogs are just the best gift that the Almighty has bestowed upon us. They are always there for us, and they perform admirably when we require assistance.
