DES MOINES, Iowa (WHO) - A Wisconsin Marine who fought in Afghanistan made the trip to Iowa to speak to state leaders Friday morning.
Sgt. Ross Gundlach had a very specific request; he wanted Iowa leaders to help him reunite with a friend he served with in Afghanistan.
Sgt. Gundlach was first asked to sit in on a special ceremony for Armed Services Day, at least that's what he was told.
But he quickly realized the ceremony was for him.
"In case you haven't figured it out you're not really here to make an appeal for your dog we've already made that for you," says Iowa State Fire Marshal Ray Reynolds.
