Arf Arf Roof Roof Bark.Sergeant Stubby of the 102nd Infantry, Yankee Division
Our little furry friends have joined the Military along side their two legged owners. One dog, known as Sergeant Stubby, started it all and went from mascot to hero during WWI after being smuggled into battle by Private J. Robert Conway. Stubby went on to detect enemy gas, bark out warnings when rival troops were near and locate the wounded on the battlefield. By the start of WWII, the military had recognized the value canine soldiers could bring and began using them primarily for recon. Stubby forged the way for all canine soldiers who followed and remains a symbol of military bravery and heroism to this day.
