K9 Cobra and his handler, Officer Harvey, are joining K9 Tygo and Officer Gamble in our K9 Unit. K9 Cobra received his badge at the Badge Pinning Ceremony on December 20, 2019.
The Branson Chapter #913 Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) chose the name, “Cobra” for the new K9. During the badge pinning ceremony, they shared the significance behind the name. Members voted on the name “Cobra” because that was one of the helicopters used for military ground support in Vietnam that helped save lives in many wars and conflicts. It is also the helicopter that was secured for the College of the Ozarks memorial.
The Branson Police Department thanks Branson Chapter #913 of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) for their generous donation.
