What unit is this? You said 9th Infantry but it looks like it says 60th on the guidon, plus the patches strangely look like 6th Army.

Another shot of "Dobbie" the doberman and other dogs/handlers from the 33rd Scout Dog Platoon upon returning home in November 1945.

I think I posted this one already awhile ago but if not, here is one of my favorites. This Marine is Cpl. Harold N. Flagg of Fairfield, Me. and his dog "Boy" on Okinawa. There is another photo of Cpl Flagg and Boy that you see commonly going around the net that is unidentified. It took me awhile to figure out who they were. This snapshot was found in a 1st Marine Division album that I have.

Notice Boy's bandaged wound? I think I remember reading that he was hit by shrapnel from a Japanese grenade.

Here are some copy photos of my friend, Henry Labombard, 88th MP co. (K9) with his dog Tanda in Vietnam (65-66). I have several other original photos of he and Tanda as well as some other odds and ends that Henry's wife gave to me. Sadly Henry is very, very sick now.

My Dad was initial cadre for the 744th Light Tank Bn and was with the unit as a MSG in the Service Company until their return to the US.  While in England he bought a young Scottish terrier and took it to the continent via Utah Beach about 3 weeks after DDay.  It was with him through the rest of the war and he managed to smuggle it back to the US on the troop ship. The dog was named Blackout and it was our family dog until it died in 1958. I have attached a picture of the dog which I believe was taken near Geleen in the Netherlands.

 

Someone in the unit made the dog a coat from a blanket or jacket.  It has SGT stripes and a screw-on US pin on one side and the unit patch on the other.  I have included a picture of the patch.

This photo is from a group that I have of an 11B Big Red 1 vet in Vietnam. It says on the back, "a peaceful day in Vietnam April 15, 1966."

Hey All,
 
Updating my wardog information to go along with some of the pieces I have. Looking to see if anyone has come across information/pictures of the following:

• Team 1 - USMC - Dog breed Dobberman (per newspaper article on Iwo) name – "Hans" per newspaper article on Iwo dated 5 march) – handler Corporal George P. Goderre – Served Guam (per silver star) & Iwo Jima (per newspaper dated 5 march) - fates unknown

• Team 2 – Branch unknown – Dog breed believe to be German Shepard) – Handler Fritz Regelmann (maybe misspelled) Served at location unknown- Fate KIA Collar sent home notifying of KIA with memorial collar and plate tag engraved “ Duke” Von Altweid 43 Betsy Williams Drive Cranston. R.I. Fate of Handler or any other information unknown. (Was this a standard practice sending collars with names engraved back to families?)I can post a picture of this later.

Thanks for any assistance everyone!

great thread!!!
