355th SFS – Tucson Area K9 Trials

During the VSPA reunion held in October at Tucson, Az., many of us attended the demonstration provided by the 355th Security Forces Squadron. Our first stop on the tour of Davis-Monthan AFB was to attend a Military Working Dog (MWD) demonstration.

We were quite amazed how our troops and canine partners performed to today’s standards of professionalism. Following this part of the tour, we departed for lunch, the “Bone Yard” and the Pima Air Museum.

Many of our “old troops” purchased T-shirts to support the 16th Annual Tucson Area K-9 Trials that was held on November 12-14, 2004. Over thirty (30) Law Enforcement agencies, departments and military units, with more than 65 teams participated in the competition. It is with great pleasure that I announce that SRA Wyatt Rhoden, and K-9 partner Ralf (D033) captured first place in the Bomb Detection competition. SRA Rhoden and SSgt Jessica George, and K-9 Partner Diego (E318), combined points resulted in a 5th place finish overall for the 355th MWD Section in Agency Detection competition.

SRA Rhoden is the adopted “pup” of Kelly Bateman (Ubon RTAB 1970-71). SSgt Jessica George was one of our hosts at the Davis-Monthan tour and also served as part of the color guard at the VDHA reunion banquet in Phoenix.

On behalf of TSgt Max Talley, and the men and women of the 355th SFS MWD Section, that I would like to express their sincere appreciation to each and everyone who enjoyed and supported the “troops” in co-sponsoring this year’s K-9 trials.

Once again, our heritage has come through with flying colors and continues to pave the way for the airman and NCOs of tomorrow.
