For the first time since September 11, 2001, a national hero returned to the site of our nation's most horrific crime today, 13 years after terrorists took the lives of over 3,000 American citizens.
Say hello to Bretagne.
This 15-year-old golden retriever is the last surviving rescue dog from that awful day, and she walked the memorial site this morning with her handler, Denise Corliss.
"After 9/11, everybody - all of us, felt such sadness," Corliss told NBC's Tom Brokaw. "We all wanted to help. I just felt so honored that we were able to respond. I really believed we could find somebody - anybody, if we could just get to the right void space. But our reality was much different."
