When Marines enter an abandoned house in Fallujah, Iraq, and hear a suspicious noise, they clench their weapons, edge around the corner, and prepare to open fire. What they find during the U.S.-led attack on the "most dangerous city on Earth" in late 2004, however, is not an insurgent but a puppy left behind when most of the city's residents fled. Despite military law forbidding pets, the Marines de-flea the pup with kerosene, de-worm him with chewing tobacco, and fill him up on Meals Ready to Eat. Thus begins the dramatic rescue of a dog named Lava--and Lava's rescue of at least one Marine, Lieutenant Colonel Jay Kopelman, from the emotional ravages of war. From hardened soldiers to wartime journalists to endangered Iraqi citizens, From Baghdad, With Love tells the unforgettable true story of an unlikely band of heroes who learn unexpected lessons about life, death, and war from a mangy little flea-ridden refugee.… (mer)

Breaks my heart there are so many abandoned animals, but glad there are people ready and willing to help! ( )

A group of Marines in Iraq found a puppy in an abandoned building they took over. They named the puppy Lava, and despite a military order not to care for any animals, the Marines fell for the cute little guy, and Kopelman started to worry about what would happen to Lava when they left. He did everything he could to make sure Lava was brought to the United States.

It was good and what animal-lover wouldn’t fall for the cute, but slightly obnoxious puppy Lava!? Loved reading about Lava, and found that more interesting than the details of the extremely difficult task of shipping him to the U.S. No surprise that I teared up a few times. ( )

Heartwarming and touching on so many levels! Literature it ain't, but I still enjoyed reading it - a really good story. ( )
  SabinaE | Jan 23, 2016 |
There are several things that makes this a striking book. For one thing, the vivid, frightening description of Fallujah at war kept me up at night, filled with adrenaline. When i finally fell asleep, I dreamt of warzones.
For another, the author, a marine, is very frank in expressing his feelings, and this really helps those of us who aren't in Iraq understand. The actual trials and tribulations of getting Lava, the puppy, to the U.S. were both frustrating and enlightening; not particularly enjoyable. The bottom line is I needed to find out about Jay and Lava's life in America and have started reading From Baghdad to America. ( )

Lieutenant Colonel Jay Kopelman is a Marine stationed in Fallujah, Iraq. The US military has strict rules about this kind of thing. Prohibited activities for service members under General Order A-1 include adopting as pets or mascots, caring for or feeding any type of any domestic or wild animal. So when the Marines on a mission to secure an abandon house find a puppy that was left behind there is only one thing they can do: save the puppy.

From Baghdad, With Love is the story of the dramatic rescue attempt of a dog named Lava and of Lava's rescue of at least one Marine from the emotional ravages of war. While the story focuses primarily on Lava's rescue we also get small insight into just how bad war can be. The story is heartwarming and another reminder of the healing power of animals. ( )
