History

Formed in 23 April 1988, the National Explosive Ordnance Disposal Association (NATEODA) is a non-profit fraternal and educational organization of active and formerly active members of the military services of the United States of America who have served in military Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) positions. Military EOD personnel of other nations are welcome to apply for associate membership.

The purpose of NATEODA is to preserve the history of EOD and to promote brotherhood among those who are serving and have served in the noble and self-sacrificing task of safely disposing of munitions.

The association was formed with the primary mission to foster fraternal relationships between former and active duty members of the all services EOD community. This is accomplished through our quarterly publication, the RSP, E-mail updates, support of the EOD Warrior Foundation and the sponsorship of our annual reunions and those of the active duty EOD. Our association reunions are rotated between locations east region, west region, and central of the United States. Our association is a terrific way to stay in touch with your EOD buddies and the EOD community.

We encourage networking and we pass the word on EOD jobs when they become available.

Special Note

Stuart Steinberg is our "Go To" man for help with VA support for current members of the EOD community. He also provides valuable assistance with medical boards and corrections petitions. His email is vetbenefits@nateoda.com
