Comments: I'm looking for anyone who served with my grandfather that
could give me information on what units he was apart of in
Korea and Vietnam. He passed away on July 28th 2012. If anyone
is looking for him please feel free to contact me. I was hoping
someone would have pictures of him. Thanks.

Comments: I came across your website by accident and felt the
need to let others know the final chapter of the 14th
EOD.

I was the one of last of 4 men in the 14th which
was retired itself following the end of Desert Shield,
Desert Storm, and Restore Hope. The 14th EOD was the
single longest actively deployed EOD unit in the Gulf
War and completed the tour with only 11 personal and no
reliefs.

Working 18 hour days, 7 days a week. We were placed
ahead of the M-1 Tanks, in Chevy Blazers by a command
structure that had no idea how to utilize a Corp asset.
With the usual EOD fineness, the writing 'The
Expendables' was clearly visible across the windshield
as the 14th EOD handled all the normal explosives
incidents, IEDs, munition demilitarizations, and,
adding to the mix, the oil well fires.

The unit was disbanded along with the 543rd EOD BN.
Its last serviceable usable equipment was handed out to
the remaining active EOD units under the 542nd EOD. Its
home, Ft.Devens, was handed the same fate. Its heart,
the EOD soldiers of the past present, and future, will
always be remembered by me and, hopefully, by all of
you as well.

Comments: Due to the age factor, many of older EOD guys are not around. Hopefully, there are some with enough fingers left to write a reply. Hoping to find some link to Lt. Gerald J Marcotte I think he retired as a Major. Especially, looking for anybody from the 14th my squad. If you know anybody please pass this along. Thanks, Tom Jefferys. I remember some of the last name, Namioitka, Botti, Sackazinski, Palmer, Kiaser, Heath, Robinson to name few. Take care TJ

Comments: A friend of mine here in Korea, Mr. Shin Yong Sook, says he served with Mr. Hazel in Korea in 1965. According to Mr. Shin, he was one of a very few Korean Army personnel to receive EOD training from the US Army. He wants to contact Mr. Hazel, but can't figure out how to do it.
