From bunker busting duds to makeshift munitions, EOD neutralizes all comers

Senior Airman Fernando Olivias Fortin, 482nd Civil Engineering Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal flight technician, places a flex liner shape charge on an Mk 58 at Homestead Air Reserve Base, Fla., Feb. 9. EOD neutralizes used and unused ordnance that remain after an incident, accident, or enemy attack which presents a threat to military operations, installations, personnel or material. They tackle a range of contingencies from neutralizing explosives and bombs, to recovering found ordnance, and supporting the secret service, aircraft crashes, incident response teams, and post attack base recovery operations.
