    CAMP SANTIAGO, Puerto Rico - Staff Sgt. Frederick Fries teaches potential team leaders how to operate the remote iRobot or ‘pac bot’ at Camp Santiago, Puerto Rico, July 28, 2012.

    Robots can be used to diffuse UXOs, which is why it is essential
    that team leaders are taught how to use these tools in their line of
    work.

    “We use robots so we don’t have to be down there,” said Fries, an EOD team leader currently with the 319th EOD out of Camp Murray, Wash. “It’s the team leaders job to take that last walk, suit up and even then there is a significant risk.”
