Explosive Ordnance Disposal specialists have one of the most dangerous and important jobs in the Air Force. They handle live explosives on a daily basis and are trained to detect, render safe, recover and dispose of explosives and ordnance including conventional military ordnance, criminal and terrorist homemade items.
The Air Force social media team is highlighting this unique career field during a Facebook Q&A Aug. 22 at 2 p.m. CDT on the Air Force Facebook page. The chat features Staff Sgt. Sarah Snyder, an EOD Team Leader at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. Snyder graduated from EOD technical school in 2005 and was assigned to Malmstrom AFB, Mont., and Eglin AFB, Fla., before coming to JBSA-Lackland this year. She has deployed to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan during her Air Force career.
We hope you’ll join us for the Facebook Q&A session, and you can also learn more about the EOD career field as a whole on the Air Force’s recruiting website.
