THE MEANING OF THE EXPLOSIVE ORDNANCE DISPOSAL BADGE

The Wreath

Symbolic of the achievements and laurels gained in minimizing accident potentials, through the ingenuity and devotion to duty of its members. It is in memory of those EOD officer and military personnel who gave their lives while performing EOD duties.

The Bomb

Copied from the design of the World War II Bomb Disposal Badge, the bomb represents the historic and major objective of the EOD attack, the unexploded bomb. The three fins represent the major areas of nuclear, conventional, and chemical/biological interests.

Lightning Bolts

Symbolize the potential destructive power of the bomb and the courage and professionalism of EOD personnel in their endeavors to reduce hazards as well as render explosive ordnance harmless.

The Shield

Represents the EOD mission, to prevent a detonation and protect the surrounding area and property to the utmost.
