Great Article... really good info. Thanks.

Proud to say I was a MWD (Military Working Dog) handler/training in the Army for 10 years. This was in 1985-95, (then as a civilian LEO for over 20 years after military service), when I joined, we were still using the MWD manuals from the Vietnam era. Was 1 of 12 members of a committee that completely rewrote and updated all the MWD manuals used today. Great times... great job.

Very cool story thank you for sharing.
 
Our Collie, "my first dog", served until '45 when he was returned to us. I think he was assigned to an internment camp because one of my first memories was of sitting on the front step and asking my dad why "Boy" got his hackles up every time Mr. Kawauchi walked by. I was 3. Dad gave me a little lesson on the war recently concluded. I still have his discharge paper from the Army Quartermaster.

Very nice article,
Alot of material is available through diffent groups:
us war dog assoc inc.
also Ft. Robinson in Nebraska is a wonderful visit, anything around San Antonio as Airforce is the provider of K9 units to most military branches. Because of the war on Terror the War Dog Machine is huge business. And rehoming the retired dogs is a needful project. Project k9 hero and Mission k9 rescue and the 37th training wing program.
The dogs range from detection specialists to full on elite warriors. The elite dogs come from very much watched bloodlines and require know how and plan and facilities to support what they do.

I have a great friend in law enforcement that is a K9 officer for 25+ yrs.
Great, loyal partners they are.
He has lost several in the line of duty to injury or disease over the years.
Shepards and Malinois
Dogs are invaluable for their senses we just cannot replicate in the field.

You left out my personal Favorite the Boxer, But my nose isn't out of joint. Nice read for more on this subject and so much more, check out Marine the life of Chesty Puller. He had quite the leg Hiking match with the Doberman crowd. No offence Dobby peeps.
