The train-up is over. The DoD certification is complete.

Friday morning..."O dark thirty".....it's wheels up for 12 of us and the dogs...headed to Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Our mission is US force protection with explosive detection K9's. Also included is the creation and implementation of a detection K9 corp for the Afghani border patrol that is just now getting trained.

Once again, thanks for all the kind words and thoughts. I will miss seeing many of you at HT's. Keep up all the hard work and when you all are enjoying an adult beveridge at the next HT, raise a glass to all the very fine young men and women in harm's way....your's truly included.

Your support is extremely important to the morale and motivation of the troops.

I'll stay in touch as best I can.

Kind regards,

Tim

Godspeed Tim....I can't begin to express my gratitude for your service.

I trained Schutzhund for years....a well trained K9 nose is an amazing thing.

Stay safe.

Hey man, good to hear from you. Take care of yourself and good luck to all of you!


PS Make sure that when someone shoots a bad guy, your dog doesn't retrieve him...:shock:
