UXOInfo.com and Ordnance Holdings, Inc. (OHI) would like to honor and remember all the people who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 1, 2001. We also send our heartfelt gratitude to the first responders and all who risked and gave their own lives to save others in the midst of all the chaos.
The events of 9/11 also profoundly impacted the EOD community with "personnel deployed in support of the operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. The operations would prove to be extremely hazardous with the widespread use of IEDS and VBIEDS by insurgents and al-Qaeda operatives. More than 130 U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps EOD personnel lost their lives over the duration of the operations. Although the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq took a heavy toll on the EOD community, it is immeasurable how many lives they saved."
To all of the families and friends of those who were impacted by the tragedies of that day, we promise to never forget.
