When members of the U.S. military return home after being deployed overseas, being greeted by man's best friend is often just as emotional as hugging their human friends. Here's a reminder of how much canine friends can mean to those who proudly serve our country.

This soldier's dog, Ann, can barely contain herself in seeing her military owner and lets the whole neighborhood know it.

A soldier's dog is so excited to see his owner again that he stands up to soldier's full height to give him a canine hug.

"I missed you so bad. I'm so sorry I went away." A military member and his dog, Gracie, share a great moment upon his return.

A German Shepherd goes to retrieve his ball and when he returns it, guess who's back home?

Chuck the boxer has been through the separation with his military owner a couple times, so he doesn't even wait for the door of the car to open before he bounds to his best friend in delight.
