In early January 1946 Army Sergeant Edward Johnstone, 22, and his brother Marine Lieutenant William F. Johnstone, 24, posed with Pinch (christened Bena Von Strathmoor), 7, veteran of the K-9 Corps, after all were honorably discharged. Pinch, the Johnstone’s family dog, was loaned to the K-9 Corps and served three and a half years with the Quartermaster Corps, United States Army. The three had just returned home to Lexington and posed for a photo at their parents, Mr. and Mrs. William C. Johnstone’s home, 111 Johnston Boulevard. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
