Kunar Province, Afghanistan – U.S. Army Sgt. Mimsy is a military working dog with 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, trained in personal protection and the detection of explosive devices and is currently serving in Kunar province, Afghanistan.

Military working dogs have been an indispensible asset for the armed forces since the first “K-9 Corps” began in 1942.
