By: Barbara Diamon/Little Things A yellow lab named Taylor, a.k.a “Tay-Tay” and “Prince Taylor,” served her country in not one, but two deployments. She was so good at her job protecting fellow soldiers that the Taliban had a bounty on her head.
Always by her side was Sgt. Tom Hanson, who protected Taylor and vice versa. She found many bombs hidden near his feet, saving his life in the process.
Thankfully, Taylor recently retired from the military and there is no longer a threat to hurt her.
When military dogs complete their service, they are usually put up for adoption. But these types of reunions are extremely costly, and as a result, it’s difficult to make them a reality — and that’s where Molli Oliver comes in.
Molli works as a flight attendant, but her true passion is reuniting military men and women with the dogs they served with. Using her own pocket money, Molli flies military dogs home so that their soldiers can adopt them and give them forever homes. And in the video below, Sgt. Hanson anxiously awaits Taylor’s arrival so he can do exactly that.
“Where’s Daddy?” Molli says to Taylor on the plane (and in first class, mind you). “We’re gonna go find him!”
Watch the incredible moment Taylor goes running straight into her dad’s arms, all thanks to one selfless woman.
