The unbroken bond: Military working dogs defend coalition, secure base borderline

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Omar Araujo, a military working dog handler and his partner Syrius a military working dog assigned to the 407th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron play fetch during some down time on May 23, 2017, in Southwest Asia. Araujo and Syrius have been partners for about a year now and are deployed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. Military working dogs are the first line of defense when it comes to explosive detection and provide security sweeps throughout the installation. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Andy M. Kin)
