  all have, so much so that I am now presenting at the next one in Sweden to highlight how the UK conducts their search operations. The conference brought up some future international collaborations open to all NATO members, from exercises in the US to handler improvement courses in Sweden and international canine biathlons in the Netherlands so look out for those events.
It wasn’t all work, work, work, there was a cultural visit to the US Capitol where the entire conference took a 30 min bus ride to Washington DC. There, we had a guided tour
of the Capitol building bumping
into a few US congress members
as the House of Representatives
was in session. After the tour we had some free time to explore and after a further 5-minute drive away from Capitol Hill we had arrived at the World War 2 Memorial located near the Lincoln Memorial. 10 minutes’ walk in either direction placed you at the Whitehouse or
the Lincoln Memorial both seen in many Hollywood movies and TV shows, with the day finished off with a social evening out in Virginia I’m really looking froward to the next one in Stockholm and future NATO conferences.
