    Well I count 4 wars: Korea, Veitnam, Desert Storm and Iraqui Freedom. How’s my counting?

    Quite a few more minor “actions”, like Panama, Grenada, Afghanistan, a few in Africa…

    I doubt if he saw any active combat. Now, Charlie Brown had lots of troublesome colleagues.

    Tbh I don’t recall him being in more than one or two strips that featured actual combat – quite adapt at avoiding it though.

    Actually, he dates Miss Buxley. —During the 60s Mad Magazine did a feature in which various comic strip characters were given psychotherapy; Beetle’s session was about always screwing up; the result was that he became the best soldier in the platoon. The Army noticed. “They’re making me a corporal?” “No,” said Sarge. “They’re sending you to Viet Nam.”

    I guess miss Buxley doesn’t count, does she Beetle?
