A touching story. . .

. . .about an encounter John McCain had with the mother of a young Marine who lost his life to an IED in al-Anbar. Do click this link and see what this election is truly about.
McCain listened and asked a few questions as Lee told the story of her son, Dustin. She said her son was killed by an explosive device as he was coming out of a building. He was two months shy of his 21st birthday, she said.

A German shepherd, Lex, that was trained as an explosive-detecting dog with Dustin's unit in Iraq and was with him when he died, sat next to Lee in the bus, his head on her thigh. McCain officials said Lex was wounded in the blast and given an honorary Purple Heart.
