|Welcome to CAV COUNTRY - LZ 2 BITS, home of CTT#7 and CTT #8. The photos on this page come from Steve Cradick who served with CTT #8 and 62nd IPCT. Steve was also a graduate of BJWS.|
|This is Steve Cradick on a stand down at his "Home". The accommodations at LZ 2 bits were "Outstanding" and offered many amenities as evident in this photo.|
|This is Shadow B387, a British trained Lab. and veteran of the Malaya Insurrection. From information which we have from that time period, we found that many of these Veteran Tracker Dogs had been decorated - and in the British Army, they held rank - probably higher than the rest of the Team!|
|Shadow awaits his next mission, or maybe the opportunity to run the "wire" and go to the village for a little something "strange".|
|Steve and buddy Shadow. Shadow was handled by both John Dotson and Steve.
Shadow was KIA in 1968 and though he is gone he is not forgotten. His handler at that time is unknown.
|The "Work Detail".|
|Party time! L to R: Steve Cradick, Donald Turner, Bill Reed, John Dotson, (?) hiding behind Tom's beer can, and Tom Niggermeyer. Love that Pabst Blue Ribbon!|
|L to R: Sgt. Moore, Shadow (working the crowd), Bill Reed, Larry Trout,
the others are unidentified.
After this tour Sgt. Moore went to BJWS in Malaysia to be an instructor and taught the trainees to have "The Fear of God" with live ammo exercises.
|A tactics discussion. L to R: Neil Couch, Donald Turner, Bill Reed, John Dotson, Tom Niggermeyer.|
Gone but not forgotten: Dennis Beuke and Elmer Mahurin forever together on the WALL.
