Subject: Poem Dedication

Hi Guys,
I wrote and dedicated this poem to all dog handler of SEA,
I was never a dog Handler. But as an NCO, I truly understood and appreciated the difficult, and dangerous task that you and your dog was continuously assigned. You both played an important and intricate part in Base Security.
I thank you and your dog for your service, during a time when other refused to serve and defend this great country.

The Dreaded K-9

In the mirror of my soul echoes
the ghost of a jungle war long
past.

Sights and sounds so surreal,
the smell of napalm as it
burns on a nearby hill.

A pop flare slowly drifts
across the razor fence,
as pajama clad shadows
in slow motion perform
their strange, exotic dance.
The Dreaded K-9

The death defying silence
broken by the roar of a
noisy 105.

Instantly followed by the
crack of small arms fire,
and the jungle comes alive.

Out of the jungle darkness,
a single voice in time.
Heel Blackie! Heel!

Enemy beware!
For here lurks the
dreaded K-9

Dedicated to all military police K-9 Handlers and their dogs that served in SEA during the Vietnam war.

The Dreaded K-9
In the mirror of my soul echoes
the ghost of a jungle war long
past.

Sights and sounds so surreal,
the smell of napalm as it
burns on a nearby hill.

A pop flare slowly drifts
across the razor fence,
as black pajama clad shadows
in slow motion perform
their strange, exotic dance.

The death defying silence
broken by the roar of a
noisy 105.

Instantly followed by the
crack of small arms fire,
and the jungle comes alive.

Out of the jungle darkness,
a single voice in time.

Heel Blackie. Heel!
Enemy beware!
For here lurks the
dreaded K-9

Jack
Dedicated to all military police

Sorry about the multiple post!
