I am a Captain in the US Air Force stationed at Osan Airbase,
Republic of Korea, and this is our squadron mascot, Jewels. His rank is
Chief Master Mascot.
Jewels is a two-year old Iguana who serves as the mascot of the 25th
Fighter Squadron. Our squadron namesake is the "Assam Draggins," named
for warriors of years past. Jewels is the perfect mascot, because he
bears such a remarkable resemblance to the "Draggin" on our squadron
patch!! Although he maintains such a menacing and intimidating
appearance, he is very friendly to the troops of the 25th here in Korea.
He likes to keep warm is his lair by cozying up to his heat lamp, and
can get highly mobile when a praying mantis enters his domain!! His
picture here depicts his "Draggin Pose" as he represents our squadron on
our official squadron rock. No mascot has better served his troops, or
