Beetle took his first furlough home to visit his family in 1952. The introductory set of daily strips in this series can be seen at: http://beetlebailey.com/2015/08/21/the-first-furlough-part-1/
To complete the story from 1952, click the “next” button in the upper right-hand corner of the web page to see the following two posts.
In April 1954, Beetle went home again and visited his sister Lois and her husband Hi. They became the stars of their own strip six months later.
In 1962, Sarge went home with Beetle for Christmas and joined him again for the holidays in 1964. A year later, Killer, Zero, Plato, Rocky and Sarge came along for a Thanksgiving visit.
Beginning on December 16, 2003 we revisited this theme again when Beetle took Sarge and Otto home for the holidays. The first installment of this story is shown above. The next four episodes are below.
Stay tooned for the rest of this thirteen-strip sequence.
