The Explosive Ordnance Disposal EOD field has made quite a few misjudgments in how we are supporting the Global War on Terrorism and the effect it is having on our Soldiers and our career field. It has created an ethical dilemma in how we fill, and train our EOD units to deploy. When solving any ethical dilemma, we must first define the problem, collect relevant facts, and come up with courses of actions to take. We have done this but are still not adhering to the courses of actions decided on, and must again revisit the problems. The price we are paying for our depleting ranks is high and the loss of highly trained Team Leaders atrocious. Many are more concerned with the Quantity of EOD Soldiers sent to battle, than the Quality. We owe Soldiers the Loyalty to do the right thing for them, the Respect they deserve, and our Integrity to ensure training takes place, for they have the Personnel Courage to get the job done.
