    Wojek was a bear that moved munitions and supplies for his fellow soldiers. He was given a rank and title, he smoked cigarettes and drank beers with the boys.

    Gabe, is this credible? Were they torturing the bear? I can't hear a touching story any more without thinking these thoughts.

    If it's old enough to be drafted, it's old enough to smoke.

    Super cool story. One of my favorites throughout history. I really wish someone would make a (great) movie about it.

    He was still a wild animal right? Can they even be completely tamed? What if he went apeshit one day and started mauling the army dudes.

    Sounds like the bear wanted to fight for the side that fights for the living.
