Portrait of Shannon

Shannon was an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician (EOD) or in other words, part of the United States Air Force bomb squad. He was a team leader which meant that he was in charge of teams of three or four people, responsible for when they went “out and how they responded and to a certain mission.”

Previous to EOD duty, Shannon was in another Air Force job, but he “wanted to do cooler stuff” so he volunteered for the “best job in the whole Air Force.”

Part of Shannon’s duty was to operate the specialized EOD robot and wear the EOD bomb suit, made famous in the movie The Hurt Locker.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
