Best of: VC the Flyin' Wonderdog and John Kerry's Other Vietnam Super-Pets
Q: "Do you have any pets that have made an impact on you personally?"
John Kerry: "When I was serving on a swiftboat in Vietnam, my crewmates and I had a dog we called VC.... One day as our swiftboat was heading up a river, a mine exploded hard under our boat. After picking ourselves up, we discovered VC was MIA. Several minutes of frantic search followed after which we thought we'd lost him. We were relieved when another boat called asking if we were missing a dog. It turns out VC was catapulted from the deck of our boat and landed confused, but unhurt, on the deck of another boat in our patrol."
But there's more, of course. Because VC the Flyin' Wonderdog wasn't John Kerry's only Vietnam Super-Pet.
