In honor of Veteran’s Day, we would like to salute all the furry-four-legged troopers! For all their bravery, we thank them.
This is Sergeant Stubby, a homeless pup in 1919 who became the mascot for America’s 102nd “Yankee” Infantry Division in France. Stubby alerted soldiers to the threat of mustard gas in time for them to don their protective masks, captured a spy all by himself and was decorated many times for, “heroism of the highest caliber”. Stubby was also famous for boosting morale in the trenches and cheering the wounded in hospital.
