DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable with Staff Sgt. Armondo Robles and Airman 1st Class Rileigh Woodward

  Broadcast in Military

Call in to speak with the host

Staff Sgt. Robles and Airman 1st Class Woodward will be on the line to discuss Improvised Explosive Devices and other threats in Afghanistan. Airmen on the ground in Explosive Ordnance Disposal units are scattered across Afghanistan in teams searching for and dismantling explosive devices before they hit our men and women, or the Afghan civilians the Coalition is trying to protect. These Airmen use unique tools, from multi-million dollar robots and Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles to water and plastic bottles -- anything that can be used is being used to defeat these threats. The Airmen are Joint Expeditionary Tasked Airmen assigned to the 755th Air Expeditionary Group at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.
