My daughter is graduating from UW in Seattle in March with her Bachelors in behavioral psychology, she is considering going to CTC school afterwards & then USAF (I am USAF Vet). I would prefer her to go civilian K-9 units...my questions are what do you all suggest? and are there any speciality schools out there to assist her instead of the military?

Ma'am if I may ask Retired "O" or "E"?
To clarify your abbreviation CTC = Counter Terrorist Course, combat training course, city technology college?
And with that Bachelors she is looking at coming in an officer correct?

If I may ask why not look to raise her Bachelors to a Masters or Phd. Level?

Very Respectively

sorry it took me so long to respond...thank you for asking..Certified Training Counselor. Her bachelors is in Behavioral Psychology. She has been doing a great deal of research and said there are only 5 CTC registered in the U.S. and it is all regarding canines. She is looking at a school that is hard core 7 days a week "boot camp" type, for working with canines.
I think she wants to take a break from the "kids" in the University levels...granted she is only 21 however, she can't take the attitudes of the party animals and don't care about grades groups and wants to continue with a STRONG fulfilling goal, then maybe go back when she has licenses in her pocket to help with the financial end of the masters and Ph.d...I am a disabled veteran and unfortunately I only can assist by getting information and e-mail ideas to her.

Mousee, Most veteran organizations offer scholarships. Also your daughter may be eligible under you GI bill. All branches of the service offer scholarships. There are alot of options available to your daughter for schooling. Perhaps the reserves would do her well. Go to Lackland as a dog handler after completion of MP school. Check with your local departments and online police dog handlers/breeders etc. Best of luck. Semper Fi.

Thank you all for your advise...I got out of the Air Force in order to save her life..interesting that 21 years later she wants to follow in my footsteps...I was a single parent.
I am the Commander of Rogers Park Post 108, American Legion in Chicago. But obviously, due to the Bush Administrations ignorance of "removal of troops" as a mom naturally I have major fears about her heading to the
Air Force NOW!!!
I even went to the trouble of seeing if I could sell my ovaries, to get her money for her advancement in college...unfortunately....that did not pan out either!!!! tee hee...
