A big congratulations to SPC Tyler Colon for earning his Promotable status to Sergeant. Not only did he prove him self worthy of promotion he was selected by his current CSM to move forward and represent his deployed kennels at the first ever Task Force Sinai HHC Quarter Board. Keep doing great things and great this will keep coming.
Today was a great day of traing for the handlers of the 8th MWD Det. The morning consisted of training and certification of CPR/AED use. Handles updated and sharpened their life saving skill and erned an American Red Cross certification. Later it was time to focus on administering first aid to their MWD as well as IV fuluides and medications. These skills are paramount for upcoming deployments and everyday use.
Big shout out to PFC Kayla Garcia for passing her first mile stone test in PEDD-E course. Keep up the great work and great things will come.
Update: PFC Kayla Garcia with MWD Yyacob attending PEDD-E school in Ft. Leonard Wood MO. This MWD Team is coming along great and is getting ready for their fist mile stone test. Please wish her good luck and cant wait to have you back.
Today we welcomed back SPC Alcoser and retired MWD Alex. Both WIA during a foot patrol on their deployment to Afganistan. It was a great comfort to have them both back on Ft Drum soil. Though they are only here for a short time they will always be part of the family.
