Arrivals and departures are business as usual in the Army, but these two were unique: both are American bulldogs.
Sgt. 1st Class Gunner D. Chester V has been the brigade’s mascot since 2005, when the brigade was stationed at Fort Riley, Kan. Shortly after the brigade, known as the “Bulldog” Brigade, activated at Fort Bliss in 2009, Chester V rejoined the formation. As mascot, he attended ceremonies, brigade runs and other events and was a particular favorite with Soldiers’ children.
