Yes, I love to see photos of Soldiers with animals, children and teddy bears. I find them endearing, showing the humanity side of our military. But I do have a soft spot for Teddy Bears!

Bryan Townsend leaves Forward Operating Base 1, Hit, Iraq, with a stuffed animal to present to an Iraqi child while on patrol with Iraqi Security forces and Marines from 2nd Platoon, India Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment.

Katy nailed the appeal of photos like this one for myself and her in the comments:
I don't know what it is, but there is something sexy about a man with a big gun and a teddy bear!!!
What do you think, well, the women anyway! ~~grin~~
