Some pigeons have served in the military.
It was typical for countries to have flocks of homing pigeons for military usage during the twentieth century. The birds may convey critical signals swiftly between bases or over enemy lines. Pigeons are credited with saving thousands of lives due to the information they delivered so faithfully. With only 5 minutes to spare, a pigeon dubbed G.I. Joe saved British troops from a bombing. During WWI, another woman named Cher Ami delivered a total of 12 important messages for the US forces. Cher Ami was hit in the breast during his last flight, yet he still managed to fly for another 25 minutes, accomplishing his job and saving the lives of 194 stranded soldiers.
