Ray Gegare took care of our little Dog, Alpha.
Once, at Kontum, (Vietnam) Alpha went into a South Vienam Special
Forces camp. A South Vienam LT Shot the dog because it was in
there Special Forces Compound
Alpha Survived... but Captain Laslie and 1st Sgt.
Schell was very upset with that LT. for shooting that Dog. Lot
of words were exchanged that day... I wont repeat what was
said for shooting our Mascot Dog. The men saw to it that Alpha
received a purple heart.
