Welcome Chesty, the 9 week old English Bulldog. He is the official United States Marine Corps mascot.
Chesty’s predecessors include 13 other Bulldogs named Chesty, all of whom are named after the late Lt. Gen. Lewis “Chesty” Puller, one of the most decorated officers in the history of the Marine Corps.
Chesty’s duties will include marching in the Friday Evening Parades and supporting various events around the National Capitol Region, according to the Marine Corps’ website.
That is, after he gets into fighting shape.
