R3 attended the 43rd Annual EOD Memorial Ball held Saturday May 7th 2011 at the Emerald Coast Convention Center in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Every year, the EOD community gathers to honor and celebrate the lives of our fallen warriors. This year we added 15 names of fallen EOD Technicians to be forever remembered on the EOD Memorial. We also use this time to extend our appreciation and share the grief with their families. R3 was proud to be a corporate sponsor of this event and if you are seeking a charity, please allow us to introduce you to the EOD Memorial Foundation.
