There was a touching reunion between a Bay Area Marine and one of his best friends from the Middle East. Ward Van Alstine hugged his dog Chloe for the first time in weeks.

Ward, who grew up in Santa Rosa, took Chloe in when he was stationed in Afghanistan and they were separated when he came home from his tour of duty.

Chloe is one of 14 dogs reunited with marines from Afghanistan by the Nowzad dogs charity.
