Subject: Vietnam Dog Information

Are you a Vietnam Vet dog handler? Do you want to know what happened to your dog?

The VDHA has access to some information about dogs that served in Vietnam. Compiled by Dr. Howard Hayes, these records are a result of his painstaking research into the affect Agent Orange had our dogs. A result of his research is a pretty accurate list of dogs, their brand number, unit and the dispositon of the dog.

So, if you're were a dog handler in Vietnam and would like to know what happened to your dog, e-mail me and we'll look it up for you. If you served after 1968 we have about a 90% chance of finding the info. Prior to that the records were, well, let's say they were not that good, maybe 50%.

Hello - Was "Buddy Boy" a black shepherd? My husband worked with Sentry Dogs in Vietnam as a dog handler, and his dog's name was "Buddy". My husband served there in 1967-1968. He has some neat stories to tell about "Buddy" - I know "Buddy" was retrained to another handler, and was wondering if perhaps you had "Buddy" just before my husband did. Thanks. Lou Forrest

I was Sgt. Paul T. Fleming a sentry dog handler at Binh Thuy air base in South Viet Nam. My dogs name was Track (A-821)known for his acute sense of hearing and smell. Track could alert on in coming rounds before they hit the base.Track was a big Belgian Shepard that loved to chew on 50 cal. machine guns, A.P.C. carriers and anything he could get his teeth on. Track was one of the most aggressive dogs on base, and a great companion.I served in Viet Nam from April 1969 thru May 1970.Thank you for caring for K-9 dogs who protect our country, they are not given enough recognition for putting their life on the line to protect their handlers.

1/5/09
I served between March 67-68, at Cam Ranh Bay RVN in the 12th SPS K-9.

My dog was Valentine 3F38.
He died in Feb.68 from stomach torsion(?) caused by fermrnting chow,that was probably left out in the sun too long in his kennel.
I was ordered to participate in his neucropsy and had to weigh his organs,ect. with the vet.Totally unnessessary,just after loosing my best friend.
Valentine was a warrior aat heart and always watched my back and loved to run off leash in the dunes.He was a hero to me and I'm only alive because of Valentine. Grusome,to say the least.I pray that no other handler had to do this,but I know that the vet needed my help in determining how he died.The vets had as much pain as I experienced.
It's taken 40 years and a lot of VA counseling to resolve survivor guilt.I'm 100% VA PTSD disabled.The PTSD did not come on until was about 55 when I retired as a sergant with the TxDPS,Texas Rangers.
Any info that is available in the reccords would be appreciated.

I was a member of Top Dog 45, the first group that went to Vietnam in 1965. My dogs name was "Frenchy OE-92". We were stationed at Bien Hoa air base with the 3rd SPS. When I left in 1966 I don't know what happened to him after that. I would appreciate any information.......Thanks T.C.

>Hello,Tom: I would appreciate if you could locate
>records related to Sentry/Patrol dogs my husband, David King, certified in Vietnam about June 1970 to Jan 1972. He was stationed at Kadena AFB. He also transported dogs in & out of Nam plus other Asian countries back to Kadena. Reason: he needs to prove "boots on the ground" for Agent Orange. No orders only single paper telling him to board a plane. Gov't states he needs to prove in Nam. Dogs have papers so hoping my husbands name should appear. I know there is a paper trail. Gov't wants a human to prove he was in Nam & only one he remembers is Joe Moliker (Funky Joe) last name maybe misspelled, a dog handler in Nam. He has a picture of Joe with his dog. Thanks for any info you can obtain for me. Thank you & Dr Howard Hayes for all your industrious work ethics. Bobbie King

My name is Tommy Rhea. I was a dog handler at Da-Nang Air Base in Vietnam. I was there from 1966-67. My dog's name was "Prince." He was a large blonde and black saddled German Shepard. I would sincerely appreciate any information you might have regarding my partner. I was air evac'd from Vietnam with Amoebic Dysentery and never saw him again. I am now in Baghdad training Iraqi Police.

> I too was at CRB same time. My dogs were Flash and George (a female). Flash had to be put-down, just plain ole eat up with all kinds of internal stuff. Later I tried to get in on Heino, that wasn't to be be, not in my life time, so THANK GOD FOR GEORGE being available. I don't know for sure, but I believe Heino and Devil are one in the same. Heino was the meanest thing on 4-legs I ever saw. One reputation Heino had, (do not know if true) is out of x-amount of handlers he bit, turned on, almost all of them. Could this be the same HEINO!!??
Good luck Freddie.

Hi Tom,
I'm hoping you remember me. You were at Tuy Hoa for a few months after I got there. I was hoping to hear from you from an earlier e-mail that I sent. I really need your help on a couple of things. First , is there any way that I can get a copy(s) of my old dogs medical records, Duke330xa. I took him to Tuy Hoa,Vietnam in Dec.1966 and handled him until July 1968. I remember you introducing me to Dr. Howard Hayes at the 1994 VDHA reunion in Washington,D.C.. After looking up my dogs name and serial #, he looked at me and asked me when the last time I had a major physical? I told that I the last one I had was when I seperated from the Air Force. He explained to me that when Duke died there was an autopsy done on Duke and he was found to be loaded with Agent Orange. He expressed a real concern about this and said that I should contact our family doctor about this.When I got home I mentioned this to the doctor and she said she was not familiar with Agent Orange. I remember a few years after I got out of the Air Force I had a sperm count test done and they told me then that I was 100% sterile and that my wife and I could not have children, so we adopted a baby girl. I'm now wondering if Agent Orange was a major contributor to this!
I'm trying very hard now to get into the V.A. and get checked out but it's not been very easy. The VET representative keeps insisting that I need to file PTSD claim instead. What I really need is authentication or proof that I may in fact have been exposed to Agent Orange because I went where ever that dog went. About 3 or 4 times Duke and I went off base on patrols with the South Koreans and the ARVONs. Is there any way you can help me out? I've got a lot of health issues and I really frustrated.
Thanks for your time,
Michael L. Warner

My dog was Sarge 46X4. I was at TSN from Aug 68 to Sep 69. I'm almost afraid to find out what you've got.

Smoke 978X was the dog I handled at Phu Cat from 3/68 to 3/69.
Mike M401 was the dog I trained and took back to Seymour Johnson AFB. I just found out he went to Udorn,Thailand in 1968.
Thanks,
Doug

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.

Tom,

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.

I was a dog handler at Da-Nang Air Force Base 1966-1967. My dog was a large blond and black German Shepard named Prince. I would love to know what happened to him.

After getting in touch with Nemo's war dog heros I now have the records of king X652. He wasn't left behind in Vietnam. He came home to Lackland AFB in 1973 and was used as a patrol dog and training aid until 1976.

Tom,

I flew to Vietnam on a TDY from Andersen AFB (3960th SPS, SAC), Guam with my German Shepherd guard dog "Satan" sometime between 6/68 and 12/69. The VA can't find any record of my presence in Vietnam (only assignment to Guam), but I need this proof for a disability compensation claim. So I am trying to find records through my dog or veternarian records for "Satan". I would also like to know what happened to my dog. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
