Corporal Harold N. Flagg and his "war dog," Boy, display a Japanese banner taken on Okinawa. Boy spotted an ambush while on patrol and suffered a leg wound in the ensuing action. Flagg’s son, Bill Flagg of Caribou, said his father served in the South Pacific during World War II and brought the dog home when he left the service. He and Boy marched in parades and appeared at community events. Harold Flagg died 26 years ago. He won a Bronze Star during WWII, but, his son said, never talked too much about the war.
