AMK9 Sponsors 5K Turkey Trot at Bagram Airfield
2 December 2012
Lake Mary, Florida/USA
American K-9 Detection Services, LLC (“AMK9”) was pleased to sponsor the recent Bagram Airfield 5K Turkey Trot held this past November in partnership with the Air Force Morale Welfare and Recreation (“MWR”) Center. AMK9 believes it is important to recognize our employees, fellow contractors, and troops who are serving overseas and thank them for their service and sacrifice, especially during the holiday season when separation from family and the comforts of home can be the hardest.
The purpose of this event was to offer a venue where personnel deployed overseas could come together to celebrate and enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday with some friendly competition. With 496 participants from across the various military units stationed at the Bagram Airfield, everyone involved agreed the event was a success in providing an enjoyable holiday activity.
AMK9 would like to recognize everyone who participated in the Turkey Trot and give special congratulations to the first, second, and third place winners respectively: Bill Holt, Navy with a time of 21:05; Yuri Knyshev, Army with a time of 21:11; and RJ Peroje, Air Force with a time of 21:15.
AMK9 has been assisting troops overseas since 2004 and we truly understand the dedication and sacrifice of those who serve during the holiday season. It is this time of year when your commitment to the AMK9 core values of honesty, integrity, and excellence means the most. In addition to the AMK9 employees, we would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to all of our fellow contractors and troops who are stationed overseas in the Global War on Terrorism. It has been honor to work beside you for the last eight years and we will continue to support you in the mission in the years to come.
