Brady Rusk, 12, hugs Eli at a retirement and adoption ceremony at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. The bomb-sniffing Labrador retriever was assigned to Brady's older brother, Marine Pfc. Colton Rusk, 20, who was killed in action in Afghanistan by Taliban sniper fire Dec. 5. The Department of Defense granted the Rusk's permission to adopt Eli and allow him to join their family.

If you could paint your picture, where would you be today? I can vision myself being in Italy, rolling hills, grass is green, row after row of grape vines. Air is just right, warmth of the sun shining down on me. People waving as they pass by. Getting closer to the city, I see tall ancient structures, absolutely beautiful, so i explore even further. In awe over the detailed stones, the massive height of the structures. Breath taking!
