Lukos

Lukos is ancient greek for “wolf”. The characteristics of the wolf match our approach to national security. The wolf is known for cunning, aggression, patience, and teamwork. An individual wolf is a smart, strong, resilient animal, but the true strengh of wolves is their ability to work together as a wolfpack. Kipling said it best in The Law of the Jungle.
