After the photoshoot Hall and Tackett - both war veterans - stayed in touch. "We were both deployed at the same time, so we bonded over that," Tackett said. "We hung out with the family, went to the beach together and went out to lunch a lot."
Hall suffers from PTSD, and Kimber had actually been trained to be Hall's service dog. But when Hall seriously hurt his back and needed surgery, he asked Tackett to watch Kimber. Tackett jumped at the chance, happy to be around Kimber again.
