            SUBJECT: Shipment of Unit Mascots to CONUS

            1. Official CINC/ARCENT policy for Operation Desert Stom. states that
            no wild or domestic animals will be adopted as pets/mascots. This
            message further precludes any veterinary assets from treating or irmuni-
            zing these animals (Encl 1).

            2. Veterinarians assigned to this command have received numerous requests
            from individuals and units concerning the shipment of adopted mascots
            back to CONUS upon cessation of hostilities. The method of proposed
            shipment is assumed to be military chartered flights.

            3. Telephonic conversation between the ARCENT Surgeon's Office and
            Staff Veterinarian, 44th Medical Brigade on 20 February reaffirmed
            the policy as stated in paragraph one. This office further stated
            that no adopted animals will be shipped back to CONUS from this theater
            of operations.

            4. Request the widest dissemination of this information to unit commanders
            within the XVIII Airborne Corps.

            FOR TtiE COMMANDER:

                                              EORGE S. ROBINSON
