    The Coast Guard sent a team of beach patrol experts to China in 1944 to help train the Nationalist Chinese Army in the use of dogs and horses for patrol and counterinsurgency duty. A total of 21 enlisted Coast Guardsmen and three officers comprised the Coast Guard team and they trained over 500 Nationalist Chinese Army troops. Three veterinary officers were also sent along.

    [SIZE=2]
    In 1942, the Coast Guard recognized that the use of dogs, with their keen sense of smell and their ability to be trained for guard duty, would help enhance the patrols. The Coast Guard eventually received about 2,000 dogs for patrol duties. The dogs and their trainers were schooled on the 300-acre estate of P.A.B. Widnener, at the Elkin Park Training Station in Pennsylvania. Others trained at Hilton Head, S.C. The first dog patrols began at Brigantine Park, N.J., in August 1942. The dogs were so successful, that within a year, the animals and their handlers were on duty in all the districts. (US Coast Guard photo)[/SIZE]

    "Oliver" the mascot of the Coast Guard icebreaker Northwind. He was born aboard the Northwind, in Greenland. His mother "Dagmar" was the ship's mascot before Oliver. He retired to an Oregon farm, in early 1954, when life at sea became a little to hard on him. (US Coast Guard photo)[/SIZE]

    "Maximillian Talisman", Service Number 224-859, a pure-bred Boxer, who was a remarkable Coast Guardsman. He had a stellar career in which he was promoted to the rank of Chief Boatswain's Mate and served at sea on board a cutter for seven years (that's 42 human years). He had enlisted in the Coast Guard in 1950 only three months after he was born. (US Coast Guard photo)[/SIZE]


    [SIZE=2]
    "Sinbad", the Coast Guard's most famous mascot. He was adopted by a crewman from the cutter Campbell prior to World War II. He was so beloved by the crew that they actually enlisted him in the Coast Guard. Sinbad served faithfully through thick and thin, surviving combat with the Germans and Japanese, causing a few international incidents with his antics, and even having a book written about him (Sinbad of the Coast Guard, written by Chief Specialist George R. Foley).Here he is at his battle station on board the Campbell, ready to take aim at a German U-boat. (US Coast Guard photo)[/SIZE]

He loved to ride the Station's boats and even rode on the back of the Station's jetski. Kenosha's school children knew him by name because he was one of the most popular attractions at their yearly field trips to the Station. (US Coast Guard photo)[/SIZE]

    It is with deep regret the Australian Defence Force announces the death of Sapper Darren Smith during operations in Afghanistan. Sapper Smith died as a result of wounds sustained when an improvised explosive device detonated yesterday morning, Afghanistan time. Sapper Smith, 26, was from the Brisbane-based 2nd Combat Engineer Regiment. Smith successfully completed his Explosive Detection Dog (EDD) Handler course in December 2006.

    Lance Cpl. Dustin Campbell, provost marshal’s office military dog handler, holds back Rex, a military working dog, from Chad Conley, Cocopah Police Department dog handler, during an aggressor demonstration at a training warehouse off Avenue B in Yuma, Ariz., March 11, 2010. The police department has been training its dogs and strengthening their capabilities by working with the Marines for the past five months. “We’re glad to have these resources to tap into,” said Chad Conley, CPD dog handler. “The Marine base has been an irreplaceable asset to our program.” Normally, the CPD take their dogs to the station to train. Using the warehouse was meant to adapt the dogs to strange settings and keep training from becoming stagnant. During training, the dogs sniffed out and located objects carrying the scent of substances such as marijuana and heroin, and also practiced subduing aggressors, who wore thick bite-resistant suits.
