The squadron's mascot, Nigger, was given beers to drink as depicted in the movie. However the dog had a habit of urinating on people's legs which made the dog unpopular with many of the squadron's personnel. Also the dog was killed when hit by a car but unlike in the movie, the driver did attempt to avoid the dog and the occupants of the car were injured as a result. Any reports of Nigger's grave being opened, and the bones revealed proving NOT to be of a dog, are false. The grave was never opened, and is protected to this day. See more
