Do you ever wonder what sort of equipment our
SEAL Teams use when they deploy on their secret

Similar to a German Shepard, the Malinois is
smaller and more compact. Because they are a
lighter dog, they are better for use in tandem
parachute jumping and rappelling operations.
The dogs are highly trained, carry out a wide
range of duties, and are trained to sniff out
explosives and hostile hidden people.
Being twice as fast as a fit human, it is
senseless to try to outrun them.
These SEAL dogs have video cameras on them and
and enter danger zones first so handlers can
get a look at what lies ahead.
The dogs are fearless, ferocious, and faithful.
They even wear night-vision goggles!
The working dogs even have their own body armor
from K9 Storm, Inc.
These are dogs that cornered Osama Bin Laden,
and set the record for the highest man-dog
parachute deployment at 30,100 feet!
While some may consider this old news, we
believe in giving credit where credit is due.
To all who are serving, or have served, with
two legs or four, we thank you.
