IED Detection Dog by MilitaryPhotos IED Detection Dog by MilitaryPhotos
U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Evan Frickey, a 21-year-old improvised explosive device detection dog handler with 3rd Platoon, Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, and native of Idaho Falls, Idaho, plays with Cookie, an improvised explosive device detection dog, while providing security on the perimeter of the Safar School compound here, March 18. Approximately 40 elders and 150 students met with Afghan National Security Forces and 3/3 Marines during a shura at the newly constructed school to discuss the growth of education in Garmsir district. While there are several small schools in the surrounding area, the school was the first built in Safar by the local government with the aid of coalition forces. Despite requiring some finishing touches, the school is a vast improvement from its predecessor. Photo by Cpl. Reece Lodder

Dame I like this picture! >u< It has this sense of mood whiplash in it because Mr. Frickey (lol) is playing with Cookie which conveys happiness but they are both involved with the military and are in military duty, which gives off a serious mood. Quite priceless, this, indeed! I give a fave! :+fav:

That is a really cool service project. I read more about it here [link]. I haven't found any recent updates on this though, I hope that it continues to be successful. If only more people would open their eyes to see our military go above and beyond the call of duty -- they didn't have to provide the security to help build this school and the overall economy there, but they did. :)

a hobby in the sparetime. :)
give these homeless animals the feeling to be loved.

if i went to one of this places and met one of these animals/dogs,
i would take them with me and would give them a new home. :]
- as far as it's possible.

I think the dog would be saying something like "Break time! Not rub my stomach and make that sound that you think sounds like you're talking to me. It makes me laugh when you do it." Just a hunch... XD
