Zack Vohaska is a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army — a job that sometimes requires him to be away from home for months at a time. Returning from those deployments is made all the better thanks to his dear dog, Buddy.
Vohaska’s most recent homecoming was no exception.
“He’s put up with a lot,” Vohaska told The Dodo. “This time I was gone for six, almost seven months for a second combat deployment. But we’re super closely bonded; he’s like my shadow.”
