Attached is a photo of SSgt Timothy Miller and his assigned MWD Marco at the original gate of Bagram AB Afghanistan. Assigned to the 824th Security Forces Squadron at Moody AFB GA, SSgt Miller and MWD Marco deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in September 2001. Deploying to an airbase in Uzbekistan, SSgt Miller and Marco performed hundreds of explosive sweeps of inbound vehicles. The dog team also performed combat patrols with members of the 10th Mountain Brigade from Ft Drum NY.
|From Uzbekistan, SSgt Miller and MWD Marco forward deployed to Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, being the first MWD team into Afghanistan. While there, SSgt Miller and MWD Marco were tasked to clear the US Embassy of potential explosive threats. As one of the first Americans to enter the embassy in over a decade, SSgt Miller and MWD Marco completed the sweep finding some old loaded magazines and a fuse from a cannon. SSgt Miller, along with an EOD technician, found the American flag crumpled in the corner of the office. SSgt Miller and his fellow team members cased the flag and laid it on the center of the US Ambassadors former desk, waiting for it to be returned to duty.|
