Airmen 1st Class Justin Coleman and Ryan Countryman, both 60th Civil Engineer Squadron explosive ordnance disposal technicians, participate in a contamination control during an ordnance training scenario at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., April 17, 2017. EOD techs conduct training on various threats to ensure they are prepared for deployment. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Daniel Phelps) Active, Reserve Travis AFB EOD support local national parks, law enforcement
Their name brings to mind the stories out of Hollywood blockbusters. Visions of deafening explosions and gun shots spin through the mind as one visualizes a service member crouching over a device, daring the sweat dripping from his forehead not to fall, praying he chooses the right wire to pull. Though this is not the most accurate scenario of what explosive ordnance disposal technicians do, this is what many picture when they hear the name.

Staff Sgt. Bennie E. Rizzo III, the 60th Maintenance Squadron aircraft structural maintenance supervisor, presents the new neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet laser at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., April 10, 2017. The laser will decrease hazardous waste created from traditional removal of paint, primer, corrosion and rust. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Sam Salopek) Technology of the Future
Looking much like a handheld vacuum cleaner attached to an extra-large Shop-Vac, the technology that may revolutionize the aircraft structural maintenance shop does not scream “innovation” on first glance. Despite appearances, the capabilities of the neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser has the potential to cultivate a healthier and safer work environment, as well as be a more efficient tool to accomplish common shop tasks.

The year was 1985. The job post stated “women applicants only” and “no experience needed.” She knew this was her opportunity for change. The allure of the $3-an-hour increase to her typist wage propelled her to apply. The interviewer asked applicants to lift the tool box and correctly recognize all of its contents. Even with her petite physique, she accomplished both tasks. At the age of 22, she was hired into the Travis Air Force Base heating, ventilation and air conditioning shop.
