EOD is a joint service military occupational skill which means EOD technicians serve within the Army, Marines, Navy and Airforce. The program is strictly manned by volunteer candidates that are specially trained. On average over 7000 brave soldiers serve as EOD technicians. They are responsible for disarming, rendering safe and disposing of a variety of unexploded military ordance and terrorist devices, normally called Improvised Explosive Devices. These devices on today's battlefields are responsible for the majority of fatalities and severe injuries to our troops. (http://woundedeodwarrior.org)
