Pfc. Hammer Finds a Home

WASHINGTON, April 24, 2004 A tiger-striped Iraqi kitten that wiggled its way into the hearts of a U.S. Army unit has made its way to the United States, thanks to a host of volunteers and two animal welfare groups.

Pfc. Hammer, an Iraq-born cat that befriended soldiers of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, during their deployment in Iraq, arrives in San Francisco, Calif., enroute to his new home in Colorado.

Someone told me about this, but I didn't believe this! PFC Hammer is a celebrity and I knew him when he was a kitten! Yes, I was there with little Hammer in Iraq, and he was adorable, friendly, and frisky! I had always wondered what had happened to him, and I'm so glad that he is out of there! Come to think of it, I'm so glad that I'm out of there! But for how long???
