RE: Intelligence reports on the Brown Baron
New intelligence on the infamous Brown Baron has been received. Following his dogfight with Capt. Snoopy, Baron was seen in the same POW camp [aka hoarding] in which Capt. Snoopy was found. Baron was apparently testing security measures there as, despite his plump exterior, he can scale thirty-six inch high pens. Baron’s flying style can be described as fearless, even playful. He is just as likely to dive into a furball involving larger, older pilots as he is to pounce from above on solitary aviators his own size. Baron can be recognized when traveling by the trophies (aka toys) he often carries with him and by his frequent stops for meals. Those responsible for Baron’s well-being have been observed to use food and belly rubs to motivate and calm him respectively. But, DON’T be fooled! Baron is highly intelligent and capable of accepting training and learning new skills. He has also shown a solid interest in chew toys.
Reports from inside German High Command suggest they are looking to transfer Baron to a new squadron. These developments should be closely watched, as any new squadron that includes the Brown Baron is almost certainly going to be successful.

RE: Captain Snoopy
Captain Snoopy was liberated from a POW camp (aka hoarding) in March ’18 after his last mission versus the Brown Baron. Capt. Snoopy fractured both front paws and only recently had the splint removed from his left paw. (The bones in his right paw had already set and did not require immobilization.) Flight Surgeons have determined that Capt. Snoopy is well on the road to recovery and is rapidly regaining the muscle tone lost in his leg while immobilized. They suggest, however, that hard landings be avoided in the future.
His current squadron leader reports that Capt. Snoopy is happy, playful, and gets on well with the other pilots in his squadron and even with his German (Shepard) nurse (although she does report that he can be a pest). When not carousing with his fellows he enjoys appropriate chew toys, and sunning himself on the grass or napping on any blanket, bed, or couch available.
Based on the reports of the Flight Surgeons and his current squadron leader, I believe Capt. Snoopy is ready for reassignment to an appropriate squadron that would appreciate this plucky puppy pilot.
