R3 sponsors 56th Annual EOD Memorial Ball

At R3, giving back to the community is more than a commitment; it’s a proud tradition. That’s why we’re dedicated to supporting the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Warrior Foundation (EODWF) and its vital programs. As a sponsor of the 56th Annual EOD Memorial Ball, we’re honored to contribute to the Foundation’s mission of assisting EOD Families in need through financial support and volunteer efforts. The ball will offer an evening filled with camaraderie and cherished memories. The entire EOD Community will come together to honor our fallen EOD Technicians, celebrate the gift of life, and strengthen the bonds within our unique community.

Join us in supporting the EODWF and honoring our courageous EOD technicians at this year’s EOD Memorial Weekend Events.

The EODWF plays a crucial role in providing financial assistance and support to Active-Duty, Reserve, and National Guard, Retired, and Veteran EOD technicians and their families. From financial aid to morale events, educational programs, and more, the Foundation ensures that the EOD family is supported every step of the way. Their unwavering commitment to caring for our EOD warriors and their families embodies the spirit of community and compassion.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for our nation.

R3 Attends Mt. Soledad 3rd Annual Women’s History Brunch


In tribute to National Women’s History Month, R3 team members proudly attended the 3rd Annual Mt. Soledad Women’s History Brunch, highlighting the illustrious 234-year legacy of the United States Coast Guard’s unwavering service. LCDR Holley Shaffner, USCG (Ret), was honored for her exceptional contributions.

Featuring a stirring keynote by CMDR Ellen M. Motoi, Deputy Sector Commander of San Diego, the event offered profound insights into the pivotal role of women in the military and their enduring impact on our nation’s history.

At R3, we staunchly champion initiatives that celebrate and empower women. Keanna Spencer, Human Resources Manager, reflected on the event, stating, “Participating in the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial brunch was an inspiring experience. Honoring the past and present military service of women, it provided a captivating opportunity to network across generations—from World War II to present-day servicewomen. I’m privileged to be part of R3, an organization that truly values and acknowledges women’s invaluable contributions to the military.”

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial for providing a platform to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary women who have served our country with distinction.
