operationbarbarossa:

Sinbad was a beloved mascot and formal member of the crew of the US Coast Guard cutter Campbell, from 1938 to 1949, complete with enlistment forms and official paperwork, uniform and his very own bunk. The dog saw action during WWII at sea and in port. He earned the total affection of the crew when the Campbell saw battle against the German submarine, U-606, on 22 February 1943 when the mascot stayed aboard the ship while all but necessary personnel to mend the cutter were evacuated.
Pictured here: Sinbad sits atop one of the guns aboard the cutter - 1944
