MT 1C.jpg (39770 bytes) This photo page is from Merle Thomas, who was with the 557th - 101st Airborne.  This photo shows Merle with Smokey outside of Hue in I Corp.  Sgt. John Leveque and PFC Hannah are with them and all are following up on an ambush from the night before.
MT 2A.jpg (19484 bytes) Sgt. Leveque, Sgt. Merle Thomas and a line unit RTO looking at a "sign" left by NVA west of FB Birmingham.  They were following NVA soldiers and water buffalo who were suspected of being used to transport 122 mm rockets, used to rocket Camp Eagle and the helicopter pads.
MT 3A.jpg (28322 bytes) Other members of the Team are behind them, but this is Merle Thomas and Smokey taking a break in the outskirts of Hue.
MT 4.jpg (28583 bytes) The Team had just "popped smoke" for an inbound slick to pick them up.  This is Merle waiting for a ride back to Camp Eagle for a well earned rest!
MT 5.jpg (17966 bytes) This is a wonderful photo of Smokey (T006) who was one of the great Labradors who were important members of the Team. 
MT 6A.jpg (20284 bytes) This photo is of Alex Villalobos with Tarka the WonderDog.  It was taken in the 557th IPCT area.  Merle writes, "We were between the 1st Bde. TOC and the Chinook pad, so when we were rocketed, it was often very interesting!"  Understatement of the year!
MT 7A.jpg (17845 bytes) This photo shows Gordon Myers, a Visual Tracker and the 557th area and Chinook pad in the background.
