Haha, I don't know if that counted, since it was a sow and not a boar, and it wasn't exactly caught. But hey, perhaps ol' Huffalump didn't know the difference. Smuckatelly stories are always fun and good for a smile. Good luck in the contest.

Good story. Though why he would want a boar for a mascot I can't imagine. Even though this is fiction, it has the feel of a true story. That shows good writing. Well done. :)

It's a while since I've reviewed a Smuckatelly tale. This is a good one. More or less believable, too, since there are still a few wild boar in the afforested areas of Germany. You have a gift for comedy.

I found this humor fiction to be interesting and entertaining. I like the
story line and the clever names. The cartoon art is appropriate to enhance this worthy contest entry.

This is a really cute short story and I love the little cartoon to go with it. Did you draw it? I have no idea why there is a warning on this story for language since you omitted the ch from Smuckatelly. Or is it the "inside" military joke defined on Urban Dictionary? Whatever, it's cute.

Always loved a good Smuckatelly story!! We all have them who have been deployed. This was well written and humorous. Read with a grin the whole time and chuckles throughout.
Good luck in the contest. Blessings, MB

Haha. Great story but I'm very surprised Smuckatelly didn't get court-marshalled for his antics. Good luck in the Short Story contest. It's a great entry.

As a story, i would say that the ending was perhaps telegraphed a little too soon, but I still got a good chuckle out of this. Actually, one of my favourite short stories of all time is "The Ethics of Pig," by O. Henry. You can find it at this site if you are interested.

Good luck in the contest.

I think this is a good entry for the Short Story contest.
Your story of Smuckatelly and the wild boars is well told.
Well done and good luck to you with the contest.

Yes, I see how a soldier would do anything for a four-day pass. This was a very good story and I liked how he abandoned the little pig for the head-on confrontation of the mother boar and the commander. They sure piled it on with the awards.
