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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.
