Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Risk for EOD Workers in Iraq
In response to my posting Sunday about American Explosive Ordnance
Disposal (EOD) teams in Iraq, I've been reminded by the Army Corps of
Engineers that EOD workers are finding the Iraqi environment even more
hazardous than the domestic range clearance projects they left behind.
In recent weeks, two EOD contractors have been killed, and one seriously
wounded, in Iraq.

For more information about both the casualties and the Captured Enemy
Ammunition mission, see
