I saw the magazine on a rack here at Hickam AFB in Hawaii last week. I actually stopped to look at the pics and glance the article on my dinner break. Great pics, and I'm glad the MWDs and their handlers are getting recognized. I tried to crosstrain from my current job (aircraft maintenance on ejection seats) to Security Forces to work with the MWDs, but I was told I was too high ranking and not needed, and even if I was needed, I would end up being the Kennel Master (a desk job in charge of the MWDs and their handlers) and not actually get to work with the dogs. Then I tried to crosstrain into EOD to dismantle bombs, and again, I was told I was too high ranking, and that I would have to go down 1 rank and leave active duty to go Guard. Nope! So I'll just be happy sticking with my ejection seats, and continue to give respect to our cops and EOD!
I know it's been posted on here before, but there is an adoption program where anyone can apply to adopt a MWD or pup in training (if/when it doesn't pass the evaluation test to become a qualified MWD). The info used to be on the Lackland AFB website under the MWD program.
