Please let me know if I missed anyone.

Ole crusty bastard 23 August 2006 10:25

I pray that there are no more names to be added, I know that this prayer will not be answered. These people are my "hero's", may God bless them and their families.

ex 23 August 2006 11:40

It's really heartwrenching to see all the names listed like this.

May they all rest in peace.

MTAFEOD 23 August 2006 20:03

These men are truly heros

Pkm594 6 September 2006 07:09

With thanks to them may they Rest in Peace

24/7 6 September 2006 07:30

My heart goes out to their wifes, kids, families, and team mates. They gave their lives protecting us, our country, and our way of life.

Rest in peace guys, you will not be forgotten.

FDEZ 15 September 2006 12:58

Please add MSGT MARTS, EDGAR 11/05 to the list of Marines.

BAYONET-14 12 October 2006 11:50

VERY tough job - RIP to those who have fallen

MTAFEOD 3 May 2007 17:21

I just checked the updated list and I am glad to see that EODC Biliter, EOD1 McSween and EOD2 Hall were added. They were filling an empty slot for us (Air Force) at Kirkuk, and they will be sorely missed.

(just sayin)

On another note, I've always had the utmost respect for those who choose to help our country in this capacity. The courage to disarm explosives is amazing and awe inspiring to me. True Patriots.
God bless EOD and their families.

The91Bravo 28 May 2007 15:53

Rest Peacefully,

And thank you all

jw 25 September 2007 11:26

We missed one:

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Joshua P. Mattero, died July 24 while trying to clear three roadside IED's in Baqouba.

Here's a link to the story.

jw 12 January 2008 21:56

Bill,
We need to add Sgt Healy

bmbsqd 12 January 2008 22:51

I know he was not US EOD, but Sapper Luke Allsopp (British EOD with 33rd RE) was the first EOD tech killed in Iraq. I believe he may have been the first known casualty at the hands of the Iraqis in the entire war. Would be cool if we could memorialize the lad.

bmbsqd 12 January 2008 23:01

Deleted. Sorry about that.

SFS0AVN 13 January 2008 12:07

Thank you for all you did, RIP and Godspeed.

2008 Memorial
 
For those who are interested in attending: The memorial will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of May this year. We've got a lot of friends to put on the wall.

AzianBlaster69 28 April 2008 11:15

Many good friends have come and gone...
 
As a former EOD tech in the Army (Class 01-140S), I had the opportunity to either work with or meet and get to know many of the techs that have given their lives in OIF and OEF. I know SSG Kim Voelz's husband, Max, also an EOD tech working for VIPSSA, and I went to school with Johnnie Mason and Kevin Jessen. Jessen and I graduated in the same class, were assigned to the same unit at Fort Jackson and then bought houses in the same neighborhood in Columbia, SC. We became very good friends and I served as his team member for his Team Leader Certification Course and then as his team member thereafter until I moved to another unit and he went to the 22nd Chem Battalion (EOD) from which he was TAD'd to the unit he went to Iraq with (for the third tour of his over there) and he was then killed while on that same tour. I miss him greatly to this day and know that he is doing bigger and better demo ops at the Demo Range in the Sky! God bless each and every tech who has stood in harm's way and saved the lives of many fellow soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen. We will NOT forget! "Initial Success or Total Failure!"

MadDash 7 May 2008 12:41

Missed another. CSM LANKFORD, JONATHAN M. 9/07. He was added to the wall at last weekends ceremony.

V/R

He died of a heart attack while PT'ing. While unfortunate, this was not a job related death.
