War is hell, and the soldiers that fight it are just people – they need love too. The animals stranded in dangerous warzones and the soldiers that fight in them gravitate towards each other because they need each other – the soldiers can rescue animals that would otherwise remain homeless, while the animals provide soldiers with some much-needed love and therapy.

If you have some touching photos of animals and soldiers becoming best friends, we'd love to see them added to this list. Upvote your favorites as well!
