The ‘actual’ first female BTS canine handler


I was surprised to see this article mentioning Leonora Aldan Blas as the CNMI’s first and only brown tree snake canine handler.  Were you not aware of Marja Onni, the “actual” first female canine handler? She retired several months ago, after many years of dedicated service, and she had been the BTS canine handler.  Please give her credit where credit is due.
