For almost a year and a half, Luciano Yulfo had waited patiently for this day to come. Judging by the look on his face, he is more than happy and elated that his dream finally came true.
Yulfo, who is a retired sergeant in the U.S. Army, was a guest of honor at a New York Knicks game, where he was being commemorated for his 36 years of service to this great nation of ours. Little did he know, he was about to be surprised with more than just a signed basketball jersey and a round of applause from the crowd. It turns out, the retired army vet who suffered permanent injuries while on duty, was wait-listed for 18 months to be paired with a service dog he desperately needed. Well, thanks to the New York Knicks organization, they were able to pull some strings and surprise him with his new best friend: a dog named Murphy. The video below depicts Yulfo’s reaction to the surprise of his lifetime:
Thanks to non-profit Paws of War, a charity with a beautiful mission:
“To suitably match pets, often left behind from war-torn areas or US kill shelters by pairing them with military veterans suffering from the emotional effects of war such as PTSD who seek the therapeutic and unconditional love only a companion animal can bring.”
Murphy was delivered to Yulfo at no cost to him. Thank you, sergeant Yulfo, and all the men and woman who sacrifice their lives to keep us all safe, for your service to this great country of ours.
