    U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Dustin Frey, Tech. Sgt. Steven Heffermen stand by as Staff Sgt. Scott Rice yells "fire in the hole" just before performing a controlled detonation at Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, March 15, 2012. All three airmen are explosive ordnance disposal technicians deployed to the 966th Air Expeditionary Squadron at BAF. 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.
