While on a mission away from home, an American soldier finds solace in an unusual new family.
Sergeant Leona was sent by the US Army on a long mission in Middle East. Away from her family and her home, she found a source of comfort and unexpected joy: two little kittens in need.
The kittens tried to shelter from the heat as best they could
Sergeant Leona discovered the 2 kittens sheltering under a small pot. They tried their best to protect themselves from the extreme heat that overwhelmed the country. Lacking food and water, they were weak and very thin. The soldier took them under his wing and provided them with all the food they needed to recover. She also brought them unconditional love.
Thanks to the sergeant’s good care, John and Flothe 2 kittens have recovered. Flo was mischievous and playful, while John was calmer. The military quickly became attached to their 2 personalities. Far from her family, she found in them a source of comfort, tenderness and love. Thus, if Leona saved the felines’ lives, they gave it back to him.
