Search for mines

Staff Sgt. Clayton Clute, a team leader with the 710th Explosives Ordnance Disposal Company on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., searches for simulated pressure plate mines buried in an overgrown field on JBLM Sept. 4 during a weeklong training exercise for the company that's referred to as tactical EOD. The training is preparing the 44-soldier company for a deployment to Afghanistan in the coming months and integrating the approximately 40 percent of EOD technicians recently out of school into the teams they'll work with while deployed.
