Advance Screening of Sgt. Stubby March 20, 2018 6:28 PM

Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, in theaters everywhere April 13, is based on the incredible true story of the unbreakable bond between a young Soldier and a stray dog who, for his valorous feats, is still recognized today as the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army. Stubby is the most decorated dog in American history and is widely considered the forerunner to the U.S. Army’s working dog program. Set against the backdrop of America’s entry into World War I, this computer-animated feature shows the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places in a heartwarming “tail” for the entire family. The screening starts at 5:00, and there will be free popcorn and soda. All proceeds go to help children with mobility issues in the DC, MD, and VA area.
