THIS MULE IS NOT GOVERNMENT ISSUE,

Press photo dated 24 July, 1958 with caption that reads:”Loaded with several reels of communication wire, this Lebanese mule seems to be worth every penny of five dollars paid for him to airborne troopers of the 24th Signal Brigade laying lines near Beirut Tuesday. Mule “skinner” (R) is Sgt. Gene E. Carney of Kidder MO. At (L) is Donald Karasek of Spangler PA. Others not identified.”
