Tech. Sgt. Kelly Badger, a 379th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron explosive ordnance disposal craftsman, uses a compact metal detector to interrogate an improvised explosive device he detected during a training exercise May 19, 2016, at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar. Badger said he chose to join the Air Force, and more specifically EOD, to save lives, even if it meant putting his own at risk. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Janelle PatiƱo)
