I am an Air Force veteran, owner of a Military Working dog (retired), and a graduate student of Military History.
I am submitting a thesis proposal this week for my final seminar. One of the two topics that I chose was to answer the question of why MWDs were left behind in Vietnam. I have the short answers or the popular rumors, but I am trying to expand/analyze it.
I am writing on here, to get assistance with any historians, primary, and/or secondary materials to use in my research should this topic be accepted. Even if there is a Vietnam veteran dog handler who would like to share their experience, I would love to hear it.
