15 Badass Recipients Of The Dickin Medal

The Dickin Medal is a British award given to animals who served faithfully in wartime. Buzzfeed listed the stories of one cat, several dogs and a surprising number of pigeons who were so honored. One of those pigeons was named G.I. Joe.
G.I. Joe was enlisted in the United States Army Pigeon Service and went on to save the lives of the villagers of Calvi Vecchia, Italy, as well as the British troops occupying it. This village was going to be bombarded by Allied forces, but he delivered the message just in time to prevent it. He was awarded the Dickin Medal for gallantry in November 1946.
