Eglin’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight hosted the Air Force’s first-ever EOD Heritage Panel Nov. 10, 2023. The panel brought together career field managers to discuss the history, current state, and future of the EOD program.
EOD has only had 10 total career field managers for the entire program, and this was the first opportunity to bring them all together, putting 270 years of EOD experience on one stage. “To understand where we need to go in the future, it’s important we look at where we’ve been and see the history of it,” stated Chief Master Sgt. Vandiver Hood, EOD’s nineth and outgoing career field manager.
