I arrived at Pleiku on April 8, 2000. I was partnered with Rebel. Very smart dog, but he was getting too old at that time to be real effective on post. Another guy who was going back to The World had a dog named Nicky. He liked how I worked and handled Rebel, and asked if I'd take Nicky when he left. Nicky was an excellent dog; and since Rebel could hardly walk the post for an entire shift, I took Nicky. After being at Pleiku for about 4 months, about 5 of us were transferred down to Cam Ranh Bay. We took our dogs with us and finished our tour at Cam Ranh.

>I was in Pleiku from 1967 to 1967. I was in the 1878 ground radio maintance, the building above yours. I can remember your men & dogs stopping in our shop some nights for coffee. Your people taught me a lot about dogs that I still remember till this day. If you get a chance send me an email & if you have a picture of youirself from back then send it al;ong amnd a little about yourself. I originally came from Pittsburgh, Pa.
