THE MOVIE IS OUT IN THEATHERS
From Megan Leavey (Rex Leavey):
To my Dear Friends, Family, Members of the Military, and Fellow Veterans,
As some of you already know, a movie based on the true story of my life experience as a Marine serving in Iraq with my Military Working Dog, Rex, will soon arrive in theaters across the country.
This movie has been a long five years in-the-making, but the time has finally come for “Megan Leavey” which is, “… based on the true story of a Marine’s Best Friend” to be released nation-wide. I am writing to you all in hopes that you will take time from your busy schedules to go and see our movie. I hope that you leave the movie entertained, but it is also my hope that this project will raise awareness about Military Working Dogs who have sacrificed their health, and in some cases, their lives, in service to our great nation.
Once a Marine, always a Marine – and as I have moved on from the Marine Corps into the next chapter of my life in the civilian world, I can’t help but reflect upon my time in combat as well as the time spent recovering from injuries sustained in Iraq. I know that many of you have suffered greatly as a result of your injuries too, both physically and mentally. Most importantly, we will never forget those who did not make it home. It would be my greatest honor to share my story in hopes that it will resonate with you in a very special way.
I am so thankful to have had this opportunity to watch my story come to life as a motion picture, and I will never take it for granted that I lived to tell the tale.
