Andrew A. Nelles - Chicago Freelance Photojournalist: Afghanistan Part II | Pet Sitter Picks | Scoop.it

The 82nd Airborne Division's 4th Brigade Combat Team has employed a unique tactic against the increasing improvised explosive device threat in Afghanistan, Tactical Explosive Detection Dogs. The TEDD teams are sent into the field to accompany foot patrols where they are effective in detecting potential IED threats. Unlike traditional Military Working Dog teams, which the Army has used in the past, TEDD teams are unique in that their handlers are regular infantrymen from the brigade who have been given specialized training in working with the dogs. The brigade has trained and deployed 18 TEDD dogs and handlers during their current deployment in Afghanistan.
