Our site belongs to the heroes known as "Combat Tracker Teams". These intrepid guys were trained by the British SAS in the beginning, and then according to the British SAS Training at the US School in Fort Gordon, GA. As to their "job" - it was to re-establish contact with the enemy; check an area for enemy activity; and find and retake our men who were captured by the NVA or VC.
Unlike the other K-9 types, the Combat Tracker Teams were offensive rather than defensive in posture. They were able to go in and take out the enemy themselves, but due to their value to the Army, were often accompanied by an infantry support group - platoon or company. They were trained to do what the "stories" call "finding and fixing the enemy." If you hear the common stories about the War in Viet Nam, it is always said that we couldn't find the "elusive enemy". Not so, the Combat Tracker Teams could and did - there were perhaps 700 men trained in this specialty during the War.
Thanks for your interest and blessing!
