Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of E-5 Staff Sergeant Andrew Stein, Air Force - Served in the Iraqi Freedom Expeditionary Force
Hometown: Albert Lea, MN
(Submitted September 2, 2008 by Fred Stein)

Andrew is my son. He was a security policeman and dog handler from 1999-2005.  He served in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.  In 2004 he was attached to the Secret Service and he was assigned to approximately 25 missions, along with his bomb sniffing dog, Fendy, to protect the presidential candidates and their families during the Presidential Campaign of 2004. Fendy is a Belgian Malanois. She has gone on to serve two times in Iraq in 2007 and 2008.  Fendy was reassigned from Grand Forks AFB North Dakota to a base in the state of Washington.  Andrew is currently a police officer for the city of Grand Forks North Dakota.   Fendy is an affectionate and playful dog, but when the leash is strapped to the collar, and the appropriate commands are given, she is definitely ready to go to work as a bite dog / bomb sniffing dog.
