Story by Walter Ham–20th CBRNE Command. A team of U.S. Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal technicians cleared 723 rounds from a U.S. Air Force training range in California’s Mojave Desert. Three EOD Soldiers from the Fort Irwin, California-based 759th Ordnance Company (EOD) disposed of a wide variety of explosive items during the 13-hour range clearance mission at the Leach Lake Tactics Range. Staff Sgt. Caleb S. Canales, Sgt. Dillon O. Fosnaugh and Spc. Brady L. Dunn found and destroyed the projectiles, including small arms ammunition, 20mm high explosive incendiary rounds, guided missile components, U.S. rocket warheads and motors, bomb fuses with white phosphorus, insensitive bulk high explosives and a few MK-82 500-pound bombs.
If you find anything that appears to be an explosive device, do not touch it, leave it where it is and call the police. We will contact the appropriate agencies to properly dispose of the item.
