FORT DRUM, N.Y. -- Army Pvt. Ethan Taylor and his search dog sit aboard a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter piloted by the New York National Guard's 3rd Battalion, 142nd Aviation Regiment based in Ronkonkoma, N.Y. during some annual training exercises on July 23. Taylor, his dog and about 15 others are members of the 16th Military Police Brigade headquartered at Fort Bragg, N.C., an active duty unit temporarily stationed at Fort Drum for training purposes. There were five dog handlers introducing their dogs to boarding a helicopter while the aircraft was not operational. Later training would allow the dogs to ride aboard an actual flight. The 142nd was also performing annual training and assisting the 2nd Battalion, 108th Infantry Regiment and the 258th Field Artillery to conduct sling load and air assault training.
