Winters 368th dog

I've clipped this photo of a 306th crewman and a dog. My dad, August Winters, sent my mom a letter; May 10, '43. With this: "Remember Brownie our little dog. Well he is still with us. Coming over we lost him several times but he'd show up just before we took off. He rode the entire way across. He's really a good flyer. Here at the base he's a friend to everybody. He's sure a cute dog. We have more fun with him. He comes over to Operations every morning. Yesterday another dog started to come into our combat room, Brownie got real sore and chased the other dog right out of the room. Sure was funny to see Brownie stick up for us, he feels it's right to be mouthpiece to the 368th, and the 368th really loves the dog. He’s everybody's friend." Except apparently for other dogs... I've seen a few unnamed dog photos, but since this is a 306th dog, I'm adopting him as my official photo. Good dog!
