The old saying is that “a dog is mans best friend” and that is especially true when you go through a war zone together.
Air Force Sgt. Harvey Holt and his K-9 partner, Jackson, were deployed together for six months between 2006 and 2007.
They went though everything you can imagine and more together in Iraq.
When Holt came home with Jackson in 2007 he went home to the Greene County Sheriffs Department while Jackson stayed behind with the Air Force.
It’s been seven years and now Jackson, who is 10 years old, will be retiring from the service and he will be moving in with Holt to spend his days on a Greene County farm.
Holt is in the process of building a heated kennel for his partner and making all of the necessary preparations.
