Brandon Denton, immobilizes Airman 1st Class Briceida Cervantes during MWD demonstration for 7th Expeditionary Air Combat and Control Squadron at the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing in Southwest Asia, Dec. 30, 2013. Military working dogs are trained to bite and hold onto the suspect until their handler gives the command to release. Denton is assigned to the 379th Expeditionary Security Force Squadron and a Hilton Head, S.C., native deployed from MacDill Air Force Base, Fla. Cervantes is assigned to the 7th EACCS and a Fort Valley, Ga., native deployed from Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Ga. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Hannah Landeros)
