At 1 ½ years old, this Devil Dog mascot is the newest Marine Corps lance corporal | Marine Corps Times

Meet the Marine Corps’ newest ― and maybe most famous ― lance corporal.

Marine Corps mascot Chesty XV was promoted from a private first class to the rank of lance corporal during a ceremony held at the Marine Barracks Washington on Thursday.

The pedigree English bulldog had proven to his Marine leadership that he was ready to promote ― but he still let out some excitable barks and wiggles during his own ceremony.

“One of the most well-known lance corporals out there, and this is the behavior we get,” Col. Donald J. Tomich, commanding officer of the Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., said during promotion ceremony remarks.
