EOD stands for Explosive Ordnance Disposal, relating to the disarming and disposal of bombs. On the battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan, bombs known as improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are responsible for the majority of injuries and fatalities. EOD Technicians are considered to have one of the most dangerous occupations in the military and willingly put themselves in harm's way to protect the lives of others.
