Summary

Summary

For Paul Morgan, the military always seemed like a viable option. At 19, after two years of college and ROTC, he enlisted in the Army and became a Green Beret. In 1965, he found himself in war-torn Vietnam as an advisor to Vietnamese airborne and ranger units. Morgan traded a .38-caliber pistol and a set of sterling rosary beads to a French priest for a German shepard named Suzie -- a dog that would not only save his life, but also ignite a passion for working with dogs. Back in the states, these K-9 soldiers would prove to be just as life saving back home as they had been in combat.
