    After a year worth of "fun" at Redstone and Eglin AFB, I am finally graduating. Just wanted to say hello to fellow EOD techs out here, and share the good news. :)

    My nephew was an EOD tech, too. I know he was at Eglin for a while but that's gotta be 10 years ago or so.

    Just remember:
    1) it's never the red wire
    2) Unless it's the red wire

    Former Navy EOD here (5333). Way before your time. Did my training school in Indian Head. Dive school was Pearl Harbor, Ft Benning for Jump, then to Eglin. Mk 16 in Gtmo. Long training cycle back then. This was mid to late 80's.

    A friend of mine was working with a some Marines in Iraq when they ran up on an obvious IED at the base of a bridge. They call it in and EOD is like 3 hours out and none of the Marines wanna sit in their vehicles in the 100+ degree heat that long being VBIED targets. They decide the best course of action is to light it up with the 50 to "disable" it. Well they cleared the IED....and it cleared the bridge.
