Writing about the Vietnam War Dogs

Hello,

This all feels a little awkward asking it, but I would like to write a book about the Vietnam war dogs, and was wondering if I could get information. What I need at the moment for accuracy though, is tattoo numbers and any and all information on training with the dogs. I would love to hear any story anyone wants to share though.

Thank you,
Dustin

Dustin,

What is your reason for wanting to write a book about
Vietnam War Dogs ?

Are you or a member of your family a Vietnam Veteran Dog Handler ?

Re: Writing about the Vietnam War Dogs

I am a veteran, but I never did get a chance to work with dogs. My reasons are fairly simple.

I think they were heroes, and heroes deserve to have their stories told. The greatest thing I could achieve out of writing this is to bring attention to their story so that what happened to them never happens again, and they are honored as they should be, alongside their human counterparts.

I'm doing a lot of research, but I would be grateful for first hand accounts. Anything anyone is willing to share. I want to do right by the veterans, both two and four-legged.
