Decorated WWI Doughboys Hold Mascot Dachsunds in Germany


 

Nothing brings out the personalities of war like a mascot dog!  I have at least a dozen decent WWI photos of mascot dogs posing with their adopted owners; these photos never cease to warm my chilly heart!  The doughboy on the far left is sporting the Distinguished Service Cross, a medal given out for distinguished service on the battlefield.  This award is only second to the Congressional Medal of Honor!
