I recently returned from AMK9 for a meeting and background check for their new contract with the State Department to provide security at the US Embassy in Baghdad. This contract is for a 1 year deployment paying a BASE salery of $96,000 plus a 10% bonus every four months. You also recieve two 25 day PAID vacations including airfair. You will be armed and working a single purpose bomb dog. They say with kennel pay and overtime you will more likely be making $130-140,000. Plus if you are out of the states for at least 330 days the first $91,800 is tax free. Meaning with the two 25 day vacations you have, one you come home the other you enjoy a paid vacation in a foriegn country of your choice.

I was very impressed with how professional they were and with all the current and future opportunites they had available. For this contract they are still looking for around 50 - 60 handlers and I thought I would share this opportunity wih the members of this forum. Below is the contact info and information for the contract and AMK9. Email them and title the email "BESF Contract - New Recruit). Attach a resume if you can and if not right a brief paragraph on your qulaifications and background.
