I posted this, with another link, already on the Community Hall forum:http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3436218.html#Post3436218
but thought I'd post it here as well since it can be easy to miss stuff there. An interesting story about Sgt. Stubby, a dog in WWI. The author's writing style can be rather colorful and numerous expletives so be advised.
Here's a direct link to the article:http://www.badassoftheweek.com/sgtstubby.html
The other story I linked to is about a bear in WWII which is also hyper-linked in the article.
