    Sgt. Stubby:
    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.

    Ticket Information: Your purchase includes one ticket (limit 6 per person) to the screening at Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas and after-hours reception at Omni Hotel. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. 

    Donation Information: Don't want to see the movie but want to help sponsor a soldier? You can make a donation to help that happen. Your generous donation will be acknowledged during the reception and on our sponsor website!

    Questions? Please contact Christine Pittsley, Project Director, Remembering World War One: Sharing History/Preserving Memories, at the Connecticut State Library: (860) 757-6517 or

    The Connecticut State Library, Connecticut Military Department, and Fun Academy Motion Pictures are excited to bring this Red Carpet Premiere of Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, featuring the state's most famous and decorated canine war hero and mascot of the Connecticut National Guard!
