Marine Corps Veteran Surprised With Service Dog at Giants Game

Former Marine Frank Giarmida, an Iraq war veteran, is getting some help from a new best friend. The veteran was being honored on the field at MetLife Stadium during a Giants game Sunday when he was surprised with a 7-month-old German Shepherd named Scarlet. Giarmida had been waiting for a service dog to help him cope with the struggles he’s faced since returning from Iraq. Scarlet was saved from a shelter and trained by the nonprofit Paws of War. “I see the dog come out and I’m looking at the screen, and I see a dog and I’m looking around and I didn’t even hear what the commentator said anymore,” Giarmida said. “This service dog is going to do a lot for me.” — Watch it at CBS New York
