An Airman's best friend

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Joshua Montgomery, a 509th Security Forces Squadron Military Working Dog (MWD) handler, and his side-kick MWD Gipsy recently returned from a U.S. Secret Service support mission involving the vice president. MWDs possess a superior sense of hearing, visual motion detection and a crushing jaw strength of 238 pounds of pressure, making them a special asset to the U.S. Armed Forces.
