Hi Jim Stewart and Charles Penley,
I saw the attached Washington Post article, 3/22/2022, in today's Tampa Bay Times.
Nemo was one of 6 dogs honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC on 3/9/2022.
Three dogs were awarded the Distinguished Service Medal and three, including Nemo, the Medal for Bravery.
I thought you might want to share this with 377th SPS and the Vietnam Dog Handler Association.
I went through the K-9 school at Lackland in the spring of 1968 and saw Nemo often during that part of our training that took place at Lackland before we moved on to Medina AFS.
I was detailed on occassion to K-9 KP and came in close contact with Nemo.
I considered it an honor.
