Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Remembering a Veteran:
Sgt. Stubby

Sergeant Stubby, 26th "Yankee" Division, AEF

I probably get at least one request each month for a story on the legedary AEF canine veteran Sgt. Stubby. I recently found that there is a definitive article on the good sergeant at "The Price of Freedom: Americans at War" section of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History website. A taxidermied Sergeant Stubby is on display at the museum.  Their website has a lot of other features on the First World War and all of America's wars, and can be visited here:

  1. Stubby rocks! I got to see him in person at the Smithsonian while doing research for my book Soldier Dogs. He's a little stiff looking, but it was great to come so close to such a big hero of the Great War. Thanks for posting this.
