Marine Offers a Heartfelt Farewell to His Loyal Companion Battling Bone Cancer, Paying Tribute to Their Indomitable Bond

U.S. Marine veteran Lance Cpl. Jeff DeYoung wanted to give Cena, his black Labrador battle buddy, a farewell ceremony fit for a Marine. The dog kept him warm during cold nights in Afghanistan and helped him cope with pain back home in America.

Cena was way more than just a dog to the veteran, and he felt it was only right to say goodbye with the utmost respect. The cancer-stricken dog retired in 2014 as a bomb-sniffer for the Marines and then became a service dog for Lance Cpl. Jeff DeYoung.
