Corporal Russ Moseley, an Afghanistan War veteran, is no longer serving overseas but he experienced some severe sadness this week after putting down his fellow war veteran, Canvas.

She returned healthy and happy to the United States and has lived with Moseley ever since, that is until this week when he was forced to put her down.
