Smedley on day of EGA CeremonyMeet Private First Class Smedley Butler, the newest four-legged mascot in a long line of decorated dogs to come out of San Diego’s Marine Corps Recruit Depot, following in a tradition that dates back to 1939, when the first bulldog arrived on the scene. Named after Major General Smedley Butler, who was the second commanding general at MCRD and was responsible for introducing the bulldog as the Marine Corps’ official mascot, PFC Smedley Butler will assume important Devil Dog duties, participating in community events and posing his loveable mug for photo opps.
