Albany - An update on a story we brought you last week. The family of a Marine killed during an attack in Iraq is one step closer to adopting the dog who was with him when he died.
Cpl. Dustin Lee, a Marine dog handler was killed March 21st by a rocket propelled grenade. His dog, Lex, a bomb sniffing dog was injured in that attack, but has now recovered and is back at MCLB Albany.
Corporal Lee's family has been trying to adopt Lex since his death, but have hit some red-tape roadblocks. Now, Cpl Lee's father says they are one step closer to bringing Lex home... thanks to a Congressman who's gone to bat for the family. "Lex was Dusty's best friend and partner and we just want to get him home where he should be," said Jerome Lee.
Lee says he understands Lex is still an asset to the Marine Corps. The adoption of Lex is still not finalized, and the family hasn't seen any guarantee they'll be able to bring Lex home soon, but they are optimistic it will happen.
