The Secret Weapon in Security for U.S. Navy Masters at Arms


FOR SOME UNITED STATES NAVY MASTERS AT ARMS,
THEIR MOST VALUABLE TOOLS DO NOT HAVE BULLETS OR BATTERIES, BUT FOUR LEGS AND A COLLAR. Hi, I’m MA3 Benjamin Parlin, I’m a military
working dog handler. I joined the Navy wanting to do police work but eventually through my
work and every day I worked with military working dog handlers and found an interest
in it. My dogs name is MWD Mia. She’s a Belgian
Malinois. Mias favorite part is probably getting bites. The mission of military working dogs is to
train dogs to detect for explosives, detect for drugs, and conduct patrol work.
We serve as physical deterrence for any threats outside our installation. I look forward to working with dogs for the
rest of my career because you get to do things every day that nobody else in the Navy gets
to do. THE BOND BETWEEN DOG AND HANDLER NOT ONLY
MAKES THE JOB MORE ENJOYABLE, BUT MAKES THE SECURITY TEAM MORE EFFECTIVE AT ACCOMPLISHING
THEIR MISSION. SEAMAN MICHAEL SANCHEZ, FLEET ACTIVITIES SASEBO,
JAPAN.
