212th MP Company

This is one of the rarest of the Vietnam War Sentry Dog Patches. The 212th Sentry Dogs were repsonsible for perimeter security at Vinh Long, USAF Base during 1970 and 1971.

All K9's operatives of the 212th were attack dogs, as such the 212th were separated from all other operatives at Vinh Long. The 212th Operatives, handlers and Dogs operated consecutive 12 - 14 day shifts. Their primary activity was at night.

One story goes that the USAF operatives at Vinh Long selected the best beer before leaving the rest to the 212th MP's. As such the 212th would venture to Soc Trang to fill a truck with beer for their monthly supply. A dog was left on the back of the turck for the journey. No Beer was ever stolen during the journeys to Soc Trang.
