Absolutley PRICELESS some of those pictures..my particular favourite is the 26th Infantry Div (sic) GI smoking the cigar and riding the truck into Germany with his dog pal......that sums it all up for me the "look" on both their faces.

 

There is also a picture in the John M Behan book Dogs of War with the German Shepherd riding on the bonnet of a Jeep..what an awesome picture

 

Keep em coming

Am i correct in thinking that ALL USMC dogs were awarded the rank of PFC ?
