I need to find the tribute that appeared in the stars and stripes
military newspaper to Walt Disney the day after he died.  It was a
full page ad on the back of the paper. we are looking to see if it was
Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse who appeared with a tear in his eye.  Bet
resting on this so we need to see the actual tribute from that ad.

I hope you bet on Mickey!

After all, who else could it really be???  Mickey Mouse was Disney's
icon, and even served as a codeword during D-Day.

The drawing you asked about appeared in the Stars and Strips of
December 18, 1966, a few days after Disney's death.  It was not a full
page ad, however.  Instead, the drawing appeared in the popular "On
The Town" column of the day.

You can see a relevant excerpt from the column at this link:
