Military Dog Adopted by Mississippi Family

Now an update to a story we've been following since thanksgiving. The Lee family of Clarke county, Mississippi are getting a new dog Friday.

But not just any dog. The family will pick up their late son's bomb-sniffing dog from a marine base in Albany, Georgia.

Lex is an eight-year-old german shepherd assigned to their son Marine Corporal Dustin Lee.

20 year old Lee was killed by a rocket-propelled grenade back in March.

Lex was also wounded in the attack,  but has recovered.

The marines agreed to "retire" him so he can live with Lee's family.
