    Story by Staff Sgt. Christopher Willis 

    455th Air Expeditionary Wing

    BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan - Military Working Dogs and their handlers assigned to the 455th Expeditionary Security Forces Group patrol and protect Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, and the surrounding area.

    The handlers perform weekly controlled aggression training with their dogs and practice in a MWD obstacle course to provide realistic scenarios the team can expect to encounter while on patrol.

    Over the past four months, the MWD team has swept more than 15,000 vehicles, mitigating all Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device threats to the installation and completed more than 200 missions “outside the wire” securing villages and roads leading to the airfield.
