Blue Dog's eyes

Cosas con las que me encuentro

Marine Private First Class Mason [? Wachtsletter ?] writing to the owners of a dog named Tubby. (via This American Life)

 "Tubby was in the front lines 23 days and had been on about 15 patrols. The second night in, he ran four Japs into a cave. And when they thought he was coming after them, they blew their heads off with hand grenades.

Now I have to tell you the worst. Tubby was shot and killed the night of August 31. He behaved like a true Marine at all times and didn’t even whimper when he died.

We’ve buried him in the Marine Cemetery along with the other real heroes of this campaign. And if it is at all possible, I’ll send you a picture of his grave.

He has a cross with his name and rank. He’s a corporal.”
