    A stick of C-4 is mixed with unexploded ordnance before airmen with the 966th Air Expeditionary Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal team perform a controlled detonation at Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, March 16, 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. Some of their responsibilities as EOD technicians include mitigating improvised explosive devices, post blast analysis and route clearing packages.
