Watch the powerful inspiration story of a kitten who saved a soldier's life
In this powerfully inspirational story, a brave young soldier from a battlefield in Iraq sustained traumatic injuries in a mortar attack. Josh Marino returned back to Fort Riley, Kansas, a changed man. He was suffering from PTSD, and the pain was too much for him to handle anymore. He decided he was going to kill himself.
The night he was going to end his life, he decided to have one last smoke outside during a thunderstorm.
There, a kitten suddenly appeared and in that moment, Josh was convinced he wanted to live. That kitten saved that soldier’s life, but disappeared shortly after, only to reappear at another pivotal moment in both their lives.
“Even before he was my cat, before he even knew me that well, Scout saved my life. He put me on a different path. He gave me the confidence to try to come back from all the adversity that I was feeling.” —Josh Marino
