'69 - 3d MPs War Dog

By: MSgt Edd Prothro, USMC Ret. 1964-1984

With the recent proliferation of stories about military working dogs (MWD) I thought I would add my two cents. This picture is Sgt. John Martino and a dog team from 3d MP Bn, and was taken in the summer of 1969. Martino was Guide for the H&S Bn provided platoon of the Provisional Rifle Company, which provided external security for the Force Logistics Command /Camp Books compound located about 1o miles north of DaNang. I think this dog must have been related to Conan. Hell, he looks just like him. Semper Fi!!!
