Mort Walker's "Beetle Bailey" comic strip was one of my dad's & one of my favorite comic strips. Little known fact: The Beetle Bailey comic strip began in the early '50's with Beetle as college guy in a campus fraternity. A couple years later, at the onset of the Korean War, Walker had Beetle enlist in the Army and the popularity of the comic strip soared. From that point on, Beetle Bailey was forever a slacker Private 1st-Class based at the U.S. Army's fictional Camp Swampy.

Mort Walker also penned the popular & long-running "Hi & Lois" comic strip.

That's one of the few comic strips I used to read on a regualr basis.

Beetle was Lois' brother, correct?

I did not know that.  If that is correct, that was a pretty cool tie-in by Mort Walker.
