JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. – With just a quick drive over to Lewis North on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, one can find a rather explosive scene. That’s because it’s home to the 3rd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Battalion.
The unit’s main purpose is the construction, deployment, disarmament and disposal of military and civilian ordnance.
As one of several mutual aid contracts JBLM has with off-base communities, the JBLM EOD team covers most of Washington, western Oregon and northern California with explosive ordnance disposal support.
