Alexandra Bufford, course instructor and veterinarian at Ft. Belvoir, Va., during a Canine Tactical Combat Casualty Care Course, a training course designed to teach medical professionals how to aid wounded MWDs in deployed conditions, at Malcolm Grow Medical Clinics and Surgery Center at Joint Base Andrews, Md., Nov. 12, 2020.
