Ghost will be waiting for him at a location specified by the soldiers on the ground, who are taking care of her.
"He is always in danger being there," Misseri explains. "Because if the wrong people found out that he's an American and he's bringing a dog back for our U.S. soldiers, that's a recipe for disaster."
Once the ex-soldier extracts the dog, he will stay at a hotel with her until the flight back to the U.S. can be confirmed.
Again, that will be no easy feat.
Dogs can't fly through London, England.
"So he has to take special routes," Misseri notes. "He can't fly certain airlines."
But once this mission is complete - the ex-soldier is expected to be stateside with Ghost by November 2 - there will be sighs of relief on both sides of the Atlantic.
"This unit could never be the same after having this new companion in their lives if they had to leave him behind," Misseri says. "They know what would happen to her."
