Unrelated, but when I first read "vet" I interpreted it as "veterinarian" and was like "why would an animal doctor be deployed to saudi arabia" for a good minute before I figured out what I misunderstood

There were veterinarians in Saudi! I guess they were vet vets. They took care of the MWDs, military working dogs. They were trained to take down bad guys, but most of the time they were sniffing the vehicles that local Nationals drove on base with. One guy had some fertilizer traces in his vehicle that an MWD indicated on. I got the opportunity to put on the padded suit and get attacked by one, they're no joke. Very well trained though!
