This article has some really cool (cute) stories about carrier pigeons of yesterday, including the story of Cher Ami, who saved the lives of 200 American soldiers during WW1 by flying through a “torrent” of friendly fire bullets to “alert commanders that the battalion needed help.” Cher Ami was awarded a Medal of Honor.
Carrier pigeons are not used for any military purposes anymore, but people do still raise them as a hobby. However, the IP address IPoAC (Internet Protocol over Avian Carrier) used carrier pigeons in 2001 to transmit internet data. Not all of the data was successfully delivered…some of the pigeons went MIA.
