Craig Grossi is an eight-year Marine Corps veteran, and a recipient of the Purple Heart. During his intelligence work in Afghanistan, Grossi found and befriended (and smuggled into his camp) a unique stray dog who “looks like a ‘Fred.’” And, when Grossi returned home to Virginia, a support team made it possible for Fred to be right at Grossi’s side during his transition back to civilian life, and then his battle with PTSD. Craig & Fred: A Marine, A Stray Dog, and How They Rescued Each Other is a memoir of two heroes. Currently, Craig & Fred tour the country sharing their incredible uplifting story. Sponsored by the Friends of the Burke Centre Library.
