Marine Saves A Kitten While Fighting In The Korean War
Sergeant Frank Praytor became famous for this 1952 picture of him feeding a lost cat in the Korean War. The picture, titled The Marine and the Kitten, was shared on Reddit in 2009 and received an overwhelming number of supporters. The original article about the man shared the fact that he saved two kittens after their mother was shot and killed. He fed them with watered down canned milk and a medicine dropper.
Praytor gave one of the kittens to another man to care for, but that kitten died when the man rolled over her in his sleep. Miss Hap, the kitten Praytor kept survived though and became the mascot for the Division PIO office.
