Working Kennel for the Military Working Dog

The new Military Working Dog Kennel includes space for outdoor training.

The current kennel facility on the 1st Special Forces Compound at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), Washington, is used to maintain and train military working dogs. Military working dog teams are highly specialized groups that support commanders in various operations and in warfighting. Today's military working dog program employs expertly trained canine handlers coupled with highly intelligent breeds of dogs.

Alternative Commute - A Challenge

Alex Francis and Ben Fisher, BergerABAM engineers, chose to commute to work via bike for the challenge.

How do you get to work? Do you take the same route every day? The month of May was National Alternative Commute/Bike Month, a time to celebrate alternative commuting methods. Depending on the agency, the intention of the month may vary. For some, it may be to promote bike safety, multimodal transportation planning, health and wellness improvements, or the negative environmental impact of single car use.
