This 2012 publicity photo provided by Animal Planet shows a soldier and military working dog, in Afghanistan. Animal Planet embedded four camera crews with front line troops for six weeks to create a television special called "Glory Hounds," where each crew was assigned to a handler and his dog and the show set out to prove that dogs were more than military "tools." �Glory Hounds" airs Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and repeats on Feb. 24 at 9 a.m. ET/PT.

It was hard to find a spot at a cafe in downtown Lansing Friday.
Dozens of people spent the morning signing Christmas cards for soldiers at Kait's Vintage Cafe.
Organizer Penny Rodriguez says she has a lot to be grateful for this year, and wanted to do something for others.
A former marine who works at the cafe told us things like this meant so much to him when he was serving in Afghanistan.
"It's emotional," said Riccardo Medrano. "It's definitely very appreciated."
