Tour pets are not uncommon in time of war. From my own experience serving in Afghanistan, many platoons and segments adopted local dogs or cats to have as mascots, or for the moral support that they . In our example, we took in a puppy named gougoune, which is a colloquial word in Quebec for flip-flop sandals. Every night, one of us would take turns caring for her.
This list of military personnel and cats who became friends overseas is a touching reminder of humanity, demonstrating that even during times of war, there are moments of beauty and kindness.
