WWII Marine Plt. Sgt. Edwards War Dog trainer grouping
Posted 05 November 2019 - 12:35 PM
He participated in the battle for Guam, MI, and Iwo Jima, VI.
He is pretty well known in Marine war dog history and is mentioned in the book, "Always Faithfull" by Capt. William Putney.
I do have a photo album I have to find.
I have a question about a War Dog honorable discharge in the group. I always wondered if this was his dog or one he brought back home with him after the war? I wondered about the breed but with a name like "Fritz" I would guess he was
either a German Shepard or a Doberman pinscher. Is there anyway to find out based on the dogs service number?

Nice group! I just finished reading "Always Faithful" a few months ago, a great book!

The photo album isn't too far as I had it last week. I will share some pics from it when I find the place I put it so I wouldn't lose it!.
