Vietnam took place in an era within the military where dogs were used heavily as scout and patrol animals. These dangerous jobs were a necessary part of every day life and the canine soldiers served their country well. Of course, the other part of their jobs was to comfort soldiers in the midst of battle, and their furry snuggles were a welcome respite from the horrors of war.
Soldiers and village people alike grew close to their four legged companions, and it’s likely that they were responsible for many of the troops holding onto their sanity while in the grips of an unwinnable battle.
