Mark Sanders (R3) and Gene Squires meet with Congressman Darrell Issa (R, California 49th District) and Congressman Rick Crawford (R, Arkansas 1st District) about the service and sacrifice of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians and how this high-demand low-density force is critical to countering the use of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) as strategic weapons of influence. Both Congressmen previously served our nation in uniform as Army EOD technicians and are working to ensure the preservation of both capability and capacity of the joint service EOD force beyond Operations New Dawn (Iraq) and Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).
