Attend the Red Carpet Premiere of
An American Hero
Be one of the lucky few to see this feature-length animated film starring Connecticut's favorite four-legged hero before it opens nationwide!
Sgt. Stubby's story sounds like Hollywood magic, but it's true! Stubby, a stray dog, was rescued from the streets of New Haven by New Britain's Robert Conroy, a National Guard soldier. Stubby was smuggled to France during The Great War and became the mascot for Connecticut's 102nd Infantry Regiment, where he became the most decorated canine in U.S. history.
