West Germany, January, 1954: "You'll have to find a better hiding place than that" is the message "Arko" seems to be conveying to a soldier from the 102nd Infantry Regiment, 43rd Division, during a winter training exercise that also saw the troops learn how to maneuver on snowshoes and skis, and operate weapons while wearing gloves. The pooch and his handler, Cpl. Leo D. Stolf, are from the 35th Infantry Scout Dog Platoon, attached to the 102nd for the exercise.
