    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.
