My great uncle Ed Hutton and Swabby a couple of days before they hit the beaches of Normandy during D-Day.

I wanted to share this family photo of Ed Hutton with the community. Location: LCI #3 off the coast of France. Date: June 1944

Hi Mike , this is a wonderful picture. Was the dog on a ship?  Dogs are so important for moral. When my son came home from Afghanistan he went to his dog before me. Thanks for sharing this.

What an adorable photo.  It looks like the puppy is wearing his own little life vest!

Ed's shipmates made the life vest for Swabby from an extra one they had on board.
