Say hello to Thunder, Flotilla 53’s first-ever staff officer for Canine Affairs.

He’s good at barking orders but, at only 5 months old, he can be insubordinate at times. Thunder’s role is in public affairs and surface operations. In particular, he’s inheriting Sandy’s role as lifejacket model and canine water safety advocate.
