Baghdad, Iraq (Oct. 11, 2003) — Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technicians assigned to the Bahrain-based Special Operations Task Force 56, work with Army EOD technicians to prepare unexploded ordnance (UXO) for demolition at a safe disposal area in the vicinity of Baghdad. The joint Army-Navy EOD teams are working diligently to destroy the sizable quantities of UXO spread throughout the country in an effort to reduce and ultimately eliminate weapons and ammunition available to insurgents for use against coalition troops.
