EOD Warrior, Veteran, and Loved One Survey

13 March 2024

The purpose of this survey is to understand the experiences of EOD Technicians and their loved ones (partners, family members). We are doing this study because we want to understand how to prevent suicide among the EOD Technician population. You will be asked about your experiences, including any current problems you may be having. Some individuals may experience discomfort when responding to these questions. You will be asked to complete the survey electronically. The survey will take about 25 minutes to complete.
