SPLIT, Croatia – The Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Team assigned to Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 10 took part in the eighth iteration of the Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) in Split, Croatia, Oct. 24 – Nov. 11, 2022.
HMA is a Department of State-led initiative to increase partner nation capabilities in the areas of de-mining, stockpile management, and EOD training.
“This training enhanced the ordnance-handling capabilities of our allies and furthered important diplomatic goals regarding mine warfare,” said Lt.
