John McCain Meets Lex the Dog

LexDo you remember the story of Lex? The Gathering of Eagles wrote about him a few months ago. He is a retired U.S. Marine. He was the faithful companion of Marine Cpl. Dustin Jerome Lee until Lee was killed in action in Iraq. Cpl. Lee's family brought Lex to live with them in Mississippi.

Cpl. Lee's mother brought Lex to meet Senator McCain today in Meridian, Mississipi. They even got to right on the Straight Talk Express. I'm sure that McCain and his family were honored to be in the company of a renowned warrior like Lex!!!

Read more about Lex at the Gathering of Eagles blog and more about his meeting with McCain here.
