For Paul Morgan, the military always seemed like a viable option. At nineteen, after two years of college and R.O.T.C., he enlisted in the U.S. Army to become a Green Beret in the 82nd Airborne. In 1965, he found himself in war-torn Vietnam as an advisor to Vietnamese airborne and ranger units. Although never officially assigned a K-9 unit, Morgan traded a .38 caliber pistol and a set of sterling silver rosary beads to a French Priest for a German Shepherd named Suzie, a dog that would not only save his life, but ignite a passion for working with other dogs in his own K-9 security business for twenty rewarding years after the war. In a country that either ignored or rejected the veterans of the Vietnam war, the unconditional love of these K-9 soldiers would prove to be just as life saving back home as they were in combat.
K-9 Soldiers is a true story that will make you laugh, cry and understand those dog handlers you see from time-to-time working behind the scenes when a disaster strikes, a child is lost, or some bad guy tries to outrun the cops.
