Mort Walker A/k/a Lt Fuzz A/k/a Beetle Bailey

Voice of America [1]:

[2]Comic strip artist Mort Walker, a World War II veteran who satirized the Army and tickled millions of newspaper readers with the antics of the lazy private Beetle Bailey, died Saturday. He was 94.

Walker died at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, said Greg Walker, his eldest son and a collaborator. His father’s advanced age was the cause of death, he said.

Mort Walker was reported to have based his characters of both Lt. Fuzz and Beetle Bailey on himself.   We would so a fly over, but Camp Swampy appears to be incapable of handling it.
