‘13 years in the making,’ Hawaii ANG receives EOD mission


The Air National Guard’s newest Explosive Ordnance Disposal flight was activated at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on May 31, as the unit transitioned from the Air Force’s Active-Duty branch.

This changeover was observed by Hawaii Air National Guard leaders and EOD professionals from around the nation during the 154th Civil Engineer Squadron EOD Flight standup ceremony, held in tribute of the unit’s history and onward trajectory.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal specialists are known for providing life-saving capabilities in deployed environments by neutralizing explosive hazards, such as improvised explosive devices. But as a primary duty at JBPH-H, they offer a wider range of proficiencies in servicing and troubleshooting live-aircraft munitions.
