“Two British tank officers, somewhere in the North African War Zone, on January 28, 1941, grin at war cartoons in an Italian newspaper. One holds a Mascot — a puppy found during the capture of Sidi Barrani, one of the first Italian bases to fall in the African War.”
Craig didn't deserve to die it was so unnecessary I miss my son
DON’T GET ME STARTED ON CRAIG
craig was that little bit of sunshine in that group. he was like an adorable puppy who just happened to follow jaha into the desert. he was the only nice one in the group who really deserved to get to the city of light. craig jumped like a fucking foot when harris got blown up and he was so fucking scared (while murphy over there was like ‘oh nbd happens everyday’)
craig was also the only person who actively called jaha on his bullshit while they were on the boat. he called out jaha’s lazy ass and told him ‘if you’re just going to sit there, then you row.’ so he’s not only a puppy, but a snarky puppy.
i had so many hopes and aspirations for craig and murphy’s inevitable friendship. he’d be the sweet kid who followed murphy around, and at first murph would be annoyed but then he’d soften to the real-life puppy, craig. if jaha’s fucking crazy ass hadn’t thrown him out of the boat, he and murphy could’ve been hanging at the man cave right now. they would bro out and get drunk and eat crackers, and save the world together. so much potential. but alas, ANOTHER ONE OF MY SON’S DIES. I AM A MOTHER OF DEAD BOYS WHO DESERVED SO MUCH BETTER.
