On June 12, the Institutes’ beloved mascot, Pfc. Lingo, was promoted to the rank of Specialist.
Lingo received his name as the result of a popular vote conducted on the institute’s Facebook page. Lingo came to the DLIFLC by way of adoption from the Monterey County SPCA two and a half years ago.
“It started out as a joke with my staff, during a meeting where the SPCA director was giving a speech. By the time we walked out, everyone was talking about turning this idea into reality.
Getting approval to have a mascot was the fastest Judge Advocate ruling I have ever received,” said then DLIFLC commandant, Col. Philip Deppert.
