There have always been military mascots.  Critters of all sorts adopted as companions.  Here are two–a lizard on a truck fender, and a puppy.  Later, when my father was in Burma, there was a pet duck, and a monkey.

According to my father, “this pup hung around the company; was playful until he was overfed by generous soldiers and became lazy.”

This post idea came from GP Cox’s re-blog of,”Frank’s Panda In Burma.”
