Canines & Cartoonists

Carrabelle’s Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum presents two special exhibits throughout March – one to honor U.S. canine military veterans and the other to recognize the role of cartoonists in WWII.

March 13 is National K9 Veterans Day to commemorate the sacrifices of the American military and working dogs. In wartime, dogs served in many capacities, as messengers and sentry dogs, for mine and explosive detection, finding injured soldiers, and flushing enemy troops from hidden spaces. Dogs’ keen sense of smell and acute hearing made them valuable assets for national security.

During WWII, cartoonists played a unique role in bringing the war to citizens. America’s earliest meme, Kilroy, is engraved on the WWII Memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C. The exhibit presents the works of cartoonists like Bill Maudlin and Dave Breger and the animated works by Disney and Warner Brothers. Plus familiar characters like Private Snafu, Donald Duck, Willie and Joe, and of course, Kilroy.

There is no charge for admission, but donations are gladly accepted.
