Frank was a sentry dog and tracker dog handler during his service in the military. He was assigned to one of the first deployed CTTs (Combat Tracker Team). He completed many successful tracking missions against a hostile and well armed enemy. During his time on point as a handler no one in support was killed or wounded. In the late nineties he worked with law enforcement in California and Texas instructing handler awareness and tactical considerations.
Shortly after 9/11 he was contacted by the military. As a SME (Subject Matter Expert) he instructed the first CTT pilot courses for DoD. His students, both human and canine, have served in Iraq and Afghanistan with distinction.
