Very excited for this one to come in. Picked it up on eBay last night from a forum member. The 459th Veterinary Detachment was based in An Khe, so it looks like this working dog received it's rabies vaccination at An Khe and was based at Bien Hoa, probably a USAF dog working with Security Police.

Neat tag with a overseas location that sets its history. I have a different tag from that I got from the bottom of a empty footlocker years ago.

Nice stuff! This is probably my favorite of war dog tags I have in my collection.

Connor, that's awesome. Recently I've taken a big interest in WWII war dogs and the process of them being donated by families so that is very cool to see.
