Blue ll P491 — Military

Location: Lawrenceville, Georgia

Blue served our country valiantly from 2011 to 2018. I served as her first handler on my second deployment to Afghanistan, which was her first deployment as an IDD MWD. While deployed Blue and I went on over 300 combat missions. She found many IED’s saving me along with many Marines and Sailors during our deployment. Once we parted ways I vowed to find her and adopt her one day. Six years later she came upon review on her disposition while she was stationed in Okinawa, Japan where she served as a SSD. After seven years of honorable service, she retired in November 2018 and made her way from Japan to Georgia. She’s been enjoying her retirement with my family and I ever since. Blue is our own personal hero and deserves to be recognized as one in her life.
