The U.S. military needs professionals who know how to disarm and destroy explosives. The bombs may be in an enemy's storage buildings, or they may be bombs that the U.S. Army no longer needs. Either way, highly trained Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technicians, like SGT. STALKER, are there to make explosive devices safe. They are trained at the military's EOD Training Facility, where they learn how to find, identify, access [assess?], and eliminate EODs. Depending on the kind of explosive and the situation, SGT. STALKER may blow them up where they are, move them then blow them up, or disarm them on the spot. Like all EOD techs, he stays up-to-date on the new explosives that are being made, so that he will know how to deal with them. Explosive munitions are a favorite of NEO-VIPER COMMANDER, and SGT. STALKER has had to render many deadly EODs harmless after a visit from the head of the NEO-VIPERS.
