U.S. Army Sgt. Bradley Houston participated in a team leader certification exercise at Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo, July 27, 2019. Houston is deployed to Kosovo in support of Multinational Battle Group East’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Task Force.
Qualifying in the team leader certification, offers Houston a chance to be in charge of his own team in the future.
“It’s a chance to utilize all the skills you’ve been training on all these years,” said Houston. “And eventually pass it on to the next younger soldier that comes in [to EOD].”
Task Force EOD team leader, Sgt. Blake White, orchestrated the improvised explosive device response scenario based on current and recurring trends over the past 20 years.
