Man’s best friend trains to detect explosives in Afghanistan

U.S. Army Sgt. Jeremy Shelton, an Amarillo, Texas, native and a Tactical Explosives Detection Dog handler with 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, gives his dog, Staff. Sgt. Rexy, a hand signal to search for a hidden explosive during a detection exercise, May 16, 2013, here. The daily training keeps the TEDD team, both handler and dog, ready to detect hidden explosives when called to go on joint U.S. and Afghan dismounted patrols, helping to keep U.S. and Afghan soldiers and local civilians safe.
