MWDs: sniffing out mission success
Senior Airman Dustin Sullivan, left, 341st Security Forces Squadron MWD handler, and MWD Erik, prepare for a medical evaluation Aug. 26, 2020, at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont. In addition to training, handlers are also responsible for the medical well-being of their K-9 and learn basic veterinarian skills during their technical schooling. MWDs have become a vital asset to security and protection due to skills humans are unable to possess, such as heightened sense of smell and faster ground speed.
