Sergeant Manuel Griffin served several tours in combat zones overseas and was planning a quiet honorable discharge from the Army when an incident almost took his life and changed his plans. Now injured, he had a one-way ticket back to the States, but couldn't bear to go home without the K-9 who saved him. Life hasn't changed much in Spring City, Kentucky, but there's a new veterinarian in town that Manny meets when he arrives home. Her quirky candor is very appealing to the soldier and his pup.
Manny's story is part of author Tiffany Carby's developing "Company of Griffin's" series.
