Guillow's The Bird Dog was used during the Korean campaign as a liaison airplane by Army Field Forces to spot the enemy's troop concentrations and direct ground operations. They were also responsible for carrying ammunition and evacuating the wounded. In 1962, the Bird Dog gained fame anew as a "FAC" airplane (forward air controller) in South Vietnam war where it was effective in spotting and directing fire against Vietcong forces.
