You (or at least I) never see original (private) photos of US K9 handlers or units taken in theater. In fact, this is the first one I have ever seen so I thought I would share it here. Even press photos of K9 units are scarce and highly sought after. This one is 5 x 7 and taken in Belgium in November of 1944.

And last week a friend turned me on to this (thanks again Bob) so it has been a good couple weeks for the doggies.

What a great photo! Any idea what unit these guys would have been a part of? I'm guessing some Corps level strength or higher? What was the role of K-9 teams in the ETO?

Bill, I don't mean to contradict, but I would say even rarer--rarer than rocking horse s**t.  Jack

This might provide some information regarding WWII  MWD missions.
