Four-legged students to train in new ‘classroom’ designed for explosive detection

Lt. Col. Matthew Kowalski, 341st Training Squadron commander, (left), and Brig. Gen. Roy Collins, Director of Security Forces for the Air Force, tour the new Military Working Dog explosives detection lab at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, May 3, 2021. The lab will be outfitted with furniture and other items to simulate a realistic environment in which MWDs will be able to train. It takes approximately six months to train a canine in the art of explosive and narcotics detection. (U.S. Air Force photo by Maxine Ababa)
