I was surprised (pleasantly) to see this as a "Picture of the week" :lifter


Caption reads:

A U.S. soldier with the 10th Special Forces Group and his dog leap off the ramp of a CH-47 Chinook helicopter.



The link may not last...but here (http://wtop.com/?nid=865&sid=2253778)it is.

Where did the 80 knots come from?

I thought the casting goal was 10 and 10?

It's an Army PAO shot from 10th SFG(A)'s recent Emerald Warrior 11 participation. It actually made the AKO "cool guy" photo on the intro page a couple of months ago.

Dogs are great on the OBJ.. Outside of the "bomb Dogs". Locals hate them and they work very well.

Dogs equipped with titanium teeth? Ian Fleming would approve.

Ah man I didn't even catch the auto correct on the phone.

I meant to say "does the dog get to SIT shotgun in the cobra?".

I have no idea why the iPhone autocorrected that one to become shit. Haha sorry about that

Pronto, a Special Operations Forces Multi Purpose Canine, successfully jumped out of a CH-47, Chinook helicopter during Emerald Warrior training exercise at Hurlburt Field, Florida in this March 1, 2011 photograph. This was the first time a dog jumped with a team, allowing members to utilize him in real world situations.
