Johnny's Angels: The Story of an Airborne Canine Unit
by John Baginski
Replete with action, surprises, suspense, and humor, with a touch of sadness, Johnny’s Angels tells a fictionalized story of how a young man, his dogs, and his girlfriend become part of a special airborne K-9 army unit during the Vietnam War.
Johnny meets Marianne as he is on the verge of losing his dog training school because of a narrow-minded landlord. Combining their skills and talents, they teach each other special abilities which allow them to successfully complete the army’s program of boot camp, K-9 school, and airborne training to become part of an elite “unit from hell” deigned to infiltrate and destroy hostile forces warring in Vietnam.
With realistic details culled from the author’s life, Johnny’s Angels reveals the story behind the US Army’s unsung heroes of countless wars, the K-9 units.
