    U.S. and Poland continue heritage of rapidly moving troops, ammunition for combat readiness

    Wojtek the bear, a 500-plus-pound Syrian brown bear that was adopted by the 22nd Transport Company’s Artillery Division, Polish 2nd Corps and served as a morale booster to troops during World War II, is said to have carried artillery shells in the Battle of Monte Cassino, Italy. A statue of Wojtek stands in the town square of Żagań, Poland. U.S. II Corps and Polish II Corps under U.S. Fifth Army and British Eighth Army, respectively, took part in an Allied assault on German strongholds May 11, 1944 across two separate fronts of the Gustav Line as part of Operation Diadem, which culminated in the fourth and final battle in the greater Battle of Monte Cassino.
