From Jennies to Jets to Stealth. 90 years of the 131st Bomb Wing & 110th Bomb Squadron
Airman 1st Class Banjo A. Burro, the beloved mascot of the 131st for many years could often be as stubborn as a…well, you know. Banjo, actually a Missouri Mule, joined the wing in the late 1950’s and appeared at many wing events and parades. Nominated for the First Sgt. position at one time, but recommended by Director of Personnel to "Second Sgt." position since First Sgt. position was presently filled. The Missouri Mule has long been identified with the 110th and 131st as the mascot of the unit and appears on patches and aircraft, including the "Spirit of Saint Louis."
