    Default Eod

    Well, after a frustrating attempt to use the search function to find pics - here I am.

    Whatever happened to the good ole days when I could type EOD into the search and atually get pix?

    I don't have a huge amount of time to go sifting through all the threads to search for the EOD pics, so if any of you would be kind enough to post them here I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Murb,

    The pics are of Marine Corps and Navy EOD techs. They are not SF guys, the Navy does do SOF support and so do certain Marine Corps techs, but they are not "Special Ops" in quite the way you're probably thinking. The techs in these pics seem to be doing pretty straight forward response type stuff. They just manage to look very high speed while doing it - you gotta give 'em props for style!

    MrJack,

    That my friend is a Joint EOD Rapid Response Vehicle or JERRV, also known as the Cougar.

    Job Overview:


    Only the most dedicated, motivated, and physically fit Sailors make up the U.S. Navy’s elite Special Operations community of SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen (SWCCs), Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians (EOD), and Fleet Divers. They carry out difficult and often dangerous missions. If you have what it takes, there could be a number of challenging opportunities ahead for you.

    The Navy has a slightly different use for the term "special operations" than other services. SEALs, SWCC, and support staff are classified as Special Warfare, while EOD, Divers and a few other rates all fall under Special Operations.

    That M4 with the distinctly-looking butt, is that standard issue for Navy EOD?

    And what M4 is that? Anyone got a full view of this?

    It's the same weapon the Navy guys here have...so it may be what they're all getting now...
