After obedience school and “recruit training,” the young puppy will earn the title Marine, joining the ranks of his well-known predecessors. Chesty’s responsibilities will include marching in the Friday Evening Parades and supporting various events around the National Capitol Region.

The puppy is in the current care of Staff Sgt. Jason Mosser, a member of the U.S. Marine Drum & Bugle Corps, and his wife Christine, who serves as an assistant family readiness officer for the Barracks.

The future mascot comes from five generations of championship bulldogs bred by mother-daughter team, Sara Gomez and Abigail Callahan from Stephens City, Va.
