Scott Rice, explosive ordnance disposal technician with the 966th Air Expeditionary Squadron and Combined Joint Task Force Paladin, looks for an exact location on a map before heading out to respond to a multiple rocket attack on base at Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, March 20, 2012. The EOD flight with the 966th AES is tasked to mitigate, render safe, and/or destroy any conventional or unconventional explosive threat as well as chemical, nuclear or biological hazards inside and outside the wire. Their operations can be performed 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
