Gallery Talk – Loyal Service: Animals in the Army

Join U.S. Army curator, Molly Bompane, to explore how animals have supported and uplifted Soldiers throughout U.S. Army history. Since the Army’s founding, animals have been a part of the Soldier experience in times of both war and peace. Animals have been used during mounted attacks, as transportation, for communication, and for bomb and other hazardous detection.

Whether a dog, horse, bird, bear, or some other creature, hear more about how these animals provide much-needed distraction, comfort, and companionship, and have even served as mascots and are considered bearers of good luck.

This Gallery Talk is a companion program to the traveling exhibit “LOYAL SERVICE: Working Dogs at War,” on display in the Museum’s Special Exhibition Gallery.

This program is offered VIRTUALLY and IN PERSON on Thursday, December 7. Museum guests may attend in person. Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
