Fort Bragg soldier and Pope airman show dogs in competitions

For their day jobs, Air Force Tech. Sgt. Ashley Hummer serves at Pope Army Airfield and Army Master Sgt. Justin Hummer serves with an airborne unit at Fort Bragg.  

In their spare time, the couple is part of a different community — showing their three dogs: Belgian Malinois, Oakley, and Doberman Pinschers, Mark and Cash. 

A native of Clarksdale, Missouri, Master Sgt. Hummer joined the National Guard when he was 17 and transferred to active duty in 2001.  

Tech Sgt. Hummer grew up in South Boston, Virginia, with a family who served in the military and joined herself in 2007.  

The couple met at Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis, New Mexico, in the mid-2000s, married in 2017 and both arrived at Fort Bragg in April 2019.  

Dog shows weren’t new to Master Sgt. Hummer, who grew up with hunting dogs and is a self-described competitor.  

Tech. Sgt. Hummer said she comes from more of the working-dog community.  

“I think it’s a really good combination of all of those worlds. It’s a little bit more mellow for our lifestyle with both of us being active duty,” she said.
