Devil Dogs take a bite out of insurgency

Devil Dogs take a bite out of insurgency

AL ASAD — In the states, McGruff the crime dog is responsible for taking a bite out of crime. In the Al Anbar Province, more specifically Al Asad, it is the four-legged Marines at the Military Working Dog Kennel taking a bite out of insurgency.

The dogs and their handlers make sure that the service members aboard Al Asad and those they accompany outside the wire, are kept safe from improvised explosive devices and other dangers.

The military working dogs and their handlers at Al Asad and the rest of Multi-National Forces-West fall under Task Force Military Police, controlled by 1st Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment.
