Friday Photo: "Wojtek" officially enlisted soldier bear

During World War II, an orphaned brown bear went from being a cuddly pet to an officially enlisted soldier in the Polish army, and reportedly saw fierce combat in Italy. Decades after the war and his death, "Wojtek" continues to be honored.

Hi Phil, yes your right fascinating, the more I learn about history the more interest I have, there is not enough time to read and learn (and play war-games as well). When I was younger I just didn't care, what a waste. Send us a photo if you do visit!! We would love to see and post here if you like.
