I was a sentry dog handler 8/66 to 8/67, my dog's name was Rinnie 681F. I would liked to know what happened to him. He was a very big and very agessive dog. We were featured in the military newspaper (can't remember its name), Rinnie had to have one of his K-9's replaced with a stainless steel tooth. We were stationd at Bien Hoa AFB.

My name is Steve Walker. I was a dog handler at Nha Trang AFB from July, 1967 to June, 1968. My dog's name was Judo. I think about him often. Thank you for helping.
