This wounded veteran’s dog served as best man at his wedding

It was only right that his best friend be his best man.

Justin Lansford and his golden retriever Gabe have become inseparable since the war veteran became wounded in 2012.

The serviceman had been on duty in Afghanistan when he lost his leg in an explosion. When he returned home, he was paired up with Gabe who became his therapy dog. A strong bond quickly formed between the two friends.
When Justin proposed to Carol Balmes, his high school sweetheart, on Veteran’s Day last year, Gabe was part of the proposal. So it made sense that the golden retriever takes his rightful place at the altar.

And we must say, Gabe looked absolutely dapper dressed in his finest.
