Movie Info

This documentary showcases the dogs who worked to help their human handlers serve the American cause in combat. During the Vietnam War, these dogs saved many lives by dragging wounded soldiers to safety and by warning troops about impending ambushes. Dogs were trained to recognize booby traps, tunnels, mines, and weapons caches, and it is estimated that their intelligence and actions prevented more than 10,000 casualties in Vietnam alone. The film, first shown on the Discovery Channel and narrated by Martin Sheen, includes interviews with handlers and footage of the dogs in action. More than 1,200 Vietnam veterans have formed the Vietnam Dog Handler Association, and there is now a formal memorial to the forgotten canine heroes.more
