This is a "feel-good" post. At least for cat lovers. If you're not, just stop reading now and move on...

This story is approximately a year old, but is just making the rounds now. The 3rd Brigade Combat Team, "Hammer", adopted a cute tabby cat over in Iraq. He went through everything with these men, mortar and artillery attacks, served as camp counselor and bedside nurse, and was on constant mice patrol. He was promoted to PFC.

When the unit learned it was to be shipped home, Fort Carson Staff Sgt. Rick Bousfield decided they could not leave one of their team members behind. He worked with many animal groups to get the tabby back to the US.

Over $2500 dollars later, the cat (aptly named "Hammer") now lives in the Bousfield household, along with 4 other cats, a dog, 2 geckos, and hamsters.
