Taylor, a Labrador Retriever, had served the US military in Afghanistan for two terms. She was a skilled service dog, earning her the nickname Princess Taylor or Tay-Tay. When it was time for her to retire from military life, Molli Oliver, a veteran flight attendant for United Airlines, stepped in to help reunite Taylor with her handler, Sergeant Tom Hanson.
Oliver had previously funded four reunions at her own expense. After escorting Taylor to first-class, Oliver watched as Hanson and Taylor embraced after two years apart. The reunion was emotional and heartwarming for all involved.
