CWD Blecky EDD to his handler, Jason in Texas
I attended the Military Working Dog Handler’s Course, as a Dept of Army Civilian Police Officer, at Lackland Airforce Base, San Antonio, Texas. I graduated MWD Handler’s Course in Jan 2010. I received the “TOP DOG” award for Block 1 and Block 2 when I graduated.
I was a MWD K9 Handler at Fort Hood Army Base, Ft Hood, TX until Oct 2012.
Mar 2013 I went to work for AMK9 as a K9 Handler, assigned to the Baghdad Embassy Security Forces (BESF), Baghdad, Iraq.
Explosive Detector Dog (EDD) Blecky was assigned to me in Aug 2014. EDD Blecky and I worked posts on the US Embassy and posts in the Green Zone in Baghdad. We were responsible for Explosive Detection of vehicles, buildings, and items coming into the Embassy Compound and the Green Zone. EDD Blecky was my K9 partner until Jun 2016.
CWD Blecky EDD is an 8 year old male Dutch Shepherd. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
