His canines protect America

By KEN BECK, The Wilson Post
Lebanons David Frost has trained thousands of soldiers for the Air Force and hundreds of troopers for the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

The catch is this: Frosts guardians of the American Way are dogs.

Since enlisting in the Air Force in 1965, Frost has trained approximately 5,000 canines. He has been a pioneer in teaching mans best friend to sniff out illegal drugs and explosive materials.

I started out as a one-striper dog handler in 1966 and retired in 1988 as the supervisor of the Department of Defense Dog School, the dog man said.

Today, the canine training coordinator for the Tennessee Highway Patrol has 37 of his four-legged charges working across the Volunteer State.
