Smoke the Donkey became a “battle buddy” of troops serving in Afghanistan. He became so important to the soldiers’ morale that a doctor wrote a “prescription” saying Smoke was a necessary companion to the men and women in his care. Those who served with Smoke eventually brought him to a Nebraska ranch, where he died this week. Here he is with retired Marine Col. John Folsom soon after he arrived in the States.
