Hero pup gets bucket list send-off

A U.S. Marine who was reunited in 2014 with the dog he served with overseas helps his furry friend check off one last item on his bucket list.

(WOOD) One man’s best friend got the send-off of a lifetime when Marine Corporal Jeff De Young took his dog and combat partner, Cena, on one last car ride.

Cena who is battling cancer, and Jeff had served on the front lines together and were separated when their deployment ended but luckily were reunited in 2014.

“My whole adult life I’ve had Cena. When I was 19 overseas learning how to be responsible I had Cena, and now I’m 27 and I’m having to say goodbye to one of the biggest pieces of my life,” said Corporal De Young.

For its part, Cena’s community showed up in force, lining the streets and forming a caravan behind the two marines’ vehicle for a proper military send-off as two best friends took one last ride down memory lane.
