Aggression Demo
On November 19th Troop 1063. We saw German Shepards and Belgian Malinois at the 647th Security Forces Squadron.  Ggreggor, a Belgian Malinois military dog, demonstrated his role in the United States Air Force.  During an aggression demonstration, Ggreggor showcased his quickness and agility when ordered to take a perpetrator down via voice command by his handler. Ggreggor also demonstrated how he would stop a perpetrator without verbal commands if the individual engages in violent behavior towards his handler.  The preference of Ggreggor and his handler is to not use force.  After Ggreggor was ordered to take down a perpetrator fleeing,he stopped on command when the perpetrator gave up.  

Visiting Our Girl Scout Sister at the Hospital 
Troop 1063 visited their girl scout sister on November 17th at Kapiolani Hospital.  “Keara was in the hospital for 6 days due to a viral problem,” said Keara’s mom, Joy.  “My daughter was surprised and gained more energy when she saw her entire troop came to visit her.  And without any plans, the troop sang You are My Sunshine’ it made my daughter's day.  Joy also added, “I admire how Lisa, as a troop leader, made this special day for my daughter,  she made it happen along with Ms. Kim. I can feel the love being a Girl Scout mom.” Here is a short video that Joy created:   http://youtu.be/1J13ZaosoNI
