The Americans are developing the Iraqis?Bomb Disposal Company, based out of Camp Habbiniyah. The 1st Marine Logistics Group?s EOD Company here stays busy responding to 15 ? 25 calls daily, in addition to training the Iraqis, who have already received three months of training from American contractors who taught them basic unexploded ordnance and explosive remnants of war reduction, cache disposal and minefield operations. The Americans are helping the Iraqis refine the skills they need to negate the threat after Coalition Forces leave, said Jeremy, a Navy EOD officer.
