822nd Base Defense Squadron K9 Teams Train Fast-Rope Insertions » BDG dog teams train fast-rope insertions

Staff Sgt. Jonathan Vega, 822nd Base Defense Squadron military working dog (MWD) handler, and MWD Bbicbic fast-rope down from a HH-60G Pave Hawk from the 41st Rescue Squadron Nov. 20, 2019 at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. The helicopter hovered approximately 40 feet from the ground. Fast-roping allows the MWD teams to quickly access a rugged location where an aircraft is not able to land and start conducting base defense as soon as they are needed.
