Video: Bulldog Lance Cpl. Chesty XIV assumes role as Marine mascot


English bulldog Sgt. Chesty XIII stepped down as the mascot of Marine Barracks Washington today, allowing Lance Cpl. Chesty XIV to get his paws on the job. Commandant Gen. Jim Amos and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps oversaw the ceremony, in which the younger pooch also was promoted to lance corporal.

Marine Corps Times videographer Colin Kelly was on the scene. Here’s his video:


Congratulations, young Chesty. You earned yourself a T-bone.
