HEROES:  Military Mascots
Shopping Cart / Checkout
Members of the Air Force Academy's class of 1959, the first to enter the Academy, chose the falcon as their mascot, believing it embodied the characteristics they had come to associate with the U.S. Air Force: speed, power, grace, vigilance, regal bearing and a noble history. Interestingly, the falcon is the only performing mascot in the National Collegiate Athletic Association and is the pride of the Air Force Academy.
The bear was adopted as a mascot by the U.S. Coast Guard soon after the turn of the 20th century. In 1926, a young cadet returned from leave with a live bear cub who was named Objee, short for objectionable presence. A favorite with cadets, Objee lived in many homes over the years, and ultimately lived up to his name. After more than six decades of active duty, he was retired to a farm in New York state.
