Scrappy, the USS Yorktown's mascot, in the cockpit of one of the Yorktown’s aircraft. Not long after departure in 1943, Captain Joseph “Jocko” Clark found a small gray dog that some of the pilots had smuggled onto the ship. The dog was dressed in a life jacket and was barking on the Flight Deck. Although the dog’s name was Scrappy, the pilots told the captain, “We call him Jock.” Apparently the quick thinking worked, and the captain allowed the dog to stay. (Courtesy of Patriot's Point)
