Community calls upon Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight to diffuse explosives

Staff Sgt. Miguel Hill, 482nd Civil Engineering Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight team member, uses his hand to uncover an improvised explosive device buried in the sand that he located with a compact metal detector at Homestead Air Reserve Base, Fla., April 6. This was part of a weeklong training exercise created to prepare members of the team for deployments by giving Reserve Airmen firsthand experience dealing with IEDs when robotic means aren't feasible.
