767th EOD Military Unit Shirts Released At Vision-Strike-Wear.Com!
When it comes to custom military unit shirts and design there is one that can make it happen!
Who is the 767th?
We have deployed multiple times to Afghanistan in direct support of the 3rd SF GRP. As EOD we support state, local, and federal stateside explosive incident responses; We support the Secret Service; train law enforcement and military units (including SOF) in Counter IED Awareness. We encompass all aspects of Explosive Ordnance, i.e.
Military Ordnance, IEDs, Booby-traps, Nuclear, Biological (Ebola, Botulism), Chemical (VX gas, mustard gas), Radiological (Dirty bombs), Toxic Industrial Chemicals/Materials (used in making devices), Poisons, Post blast analysis (invstigation)
Exploitation (similar to CSI), etc.
767 EOD is unique for the fact that we do all that plus try to fit in with SOF operators and run dismounted a lot. Conventional units don’t have to worry about that. They usually run as
mounted teams attached to elements that will pull security for them.
The increased danger in this style of EOD tech has been evident in that two of the three Army Techs added to the EOD Memorial this past year were from the 767th. The 767th EOD Prepares for Combat Assignment To Afghanistan Working closely with the US Army and the 3rd Special Forces Group, the 767th prepares for deployment operations near Kabul, Afghanistan.
May 9, 2013 - The mission and role of Army Combat Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams and their companies is at an all time high with regard to deployment schedules and their much needed expertise in the field. As combat operations take on a different phase in Afghanistan with infantry and combat troops being relieved by civil affairs, police trained units with military police for example, the need for EOD units is on the increase. After many years of operations in Afghanistan, the United States is faced with dealing with the aftermath of war and destruction throughout the country and now is dealing with even bigger threats from unexploded ordnance, minefields and other destructive and very dangerous explosives strewn about the country’s landscape.
From Kabul, to Bagram Airfield attacks, Kandahar, Kunduz, Alasay, Kamdesh, Wanat, and Musa Qala these battles and engagements left a variety of ordnance hidden beneath the sands and hills of Afghanistan which now need to be removed.
The role of the 767th EOD company with its complement of highly trained EOD techs have now been assigned the task of returning to Afghanistan to remove the threat of these IED devices and begin this labor intensive role. The 767th will be working closely with the 3rd
SFG to assist in this large project. Additional details of their missions, timetables and overall scope of operations will not be disclosed. To better understand the focus and role of what a US Army EOD tech does one needs to better understand the full range of
training and experience that is required to perform this highly skilled and dangerous job within the United States Army.
This is the 767th EOD Company and it is our great honor at Vision-Strike-
