Always post this on the Marine Corps Birthday 🙂 My dad in the Corps working dogs.

They were the first dog platoon to arrive in Vietnam. This was also the fist time dogs had been used since WW2. Here he is near Danang, Sept 1965, 3rd Marine Div, 1st Provisional Dog Platoon.

US Air Force flight line, Bien Hoa Air Base. Mostly F-100’s but notice the four delta wing F-102 interceptor’s at lower right standing by for the MiGs that never came. An F-102 crashed after takeoff just over the river in the background when I was in the 190th AHC. One of our helicopters was there to pick him up before his parachute hit the ground.
