Palominas, Arizona - (Sept 26) -- Less than a week after it was first introduced to the public, American Border Patrol's new Border Hawk II unmanned aerial vehicle has been pressed into service in a test for the Department of Defense for possible deployment to the Middle East. According to ABP head Glenn Spencer, the DOD tests have delayed the start of UAV border patrols originally scheduled for September 22. "We could not ignore the call to help our troops," Spencer said.
