Tinker AFB, Okla., officials have named the base’s new military working dog kennel facility after security forces dog handler TSgt. Jason Norton. Norton was killed near Taji, Iraq, on Jan. 22, 2006, when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device. At the time of his death, he served with the 3rd Security Forces Squadron at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, but he had spent four years with Tinker’s 72nd Security Forces Squadron.
