National Puppy Day!


Happy National Puppy Day! 🐶

Our 4-legged best friends have a long history of serving at sea. On naval vessels, dogs were kept to provide much needed companionship and to boost morale during long, monotonous journeys. Naval crews adopted them as the ship’s mascot. Countless images exist of Sailors proudly posing with their dogs, showing the positive effect that the dogs had on their morale.


Take a look at this fantastic collection of photos of dogs from the Naval History & Heritage Command.
