EOD stands for Explosive Ordnance Disposal, the disarming and disposal of any and all military explosives. This task is not easy and comes with a heavy price, Initial Success or Total Failure. Those who earn the right to wear the EOD "Crab" willingly put themselves in harms way to protect the lives and property of others. Whether the problem at hand is a dud fired grenade on a training range, or an enemy Improvised Explosive Device in a war torn country, these men and women never hesitate to respond.
