James Island, South Carolina An Air Force EOD team from Joint Base Charleston removed an old UXO from a home on James Island. The James Island Fire Department and Charleston County Bomb Squad were also called to the scene after a woman found the device in her shed.
The area was blocked of and neighboring homes were evacuated as EOD removed the ordnance to transport it out of the neighborhood for disposal at Joint Base Charleston.
The homeowner was cleaning out the shed which had been used by her late husband as a shop. The item had been given to her husband, a collector, over 15 years ago. She had believed it to be inert until a friend noticed the pin still in place.
