We started to build a plan for we've got fifteen different -- broken up that point three units involved.
We've broken down and about a 150 mile segments.
And then once we send out to see people in the involved and jumped all over the opportunity so.
And then once we've made those connections it was it was really rather easy to plan and people people were eager to do it and then.
The civilians along the way we're more than willing to help us out we were hosted almost every night that we are out we -- -- -- meals away soon it was phenomenal -- And so Yeltsin goal was to wind up in New York City that was before September the eleventh.
At what it along the way did you fall behind did you did.

This man what -- what was He doing -- -- with these.
And He think He -- and a number of things a lot of times a sudden movements crowded areas the He can't see can perceived as an act of aggression.
And he's really hammered protecting the community perceives -- threat to me He will He would do you can't defend.
And what's his job.
He's an explosive -- -- that's what that means is he's trained to seek out and find explosives for -- wherever they may be.
And the patrol mean basically is our word for attack.
What would you show us how that works I mean He got the studio here.
You can work anywhere you want to and He could probably follow you but how does that work -- -- -- I would do is.
-- any given area for -- room like this basically the -- the C commands that would lead him around the room and I present general -- Hugh Smithson and if there's explosive there.
And you get -- what we call final response from He would sit down.
Which signifies to me is there's -- -- right to run through it obviously there's nothing in here and trying to run through to -- -- He's gonna start sniffing around.
What is different stuff and we'll do pretty much this autism what would that call you did before.
The sound like a duck call is this something I do to to get his attention and anything that I guess -- does He -- different things for me just make it quick.
Sound I want from our news reader it's been ten million redirecting any tendency to death warrant you gotta keep them away from the crane camera -- -- -- -- a drug dog.

That he's not ninety days 9200 days train -- dog.
-- it's knowing how to do their job.
And once -- none of that they get shipped out to an air force base so armies what he's done.
And then that we bring them up from down here to -- So what happens when he's done with this service I take it his injuries did not incapacitate him from being able to continue -- and He actually He rebounded.
