Navy EOD Ethos
I am a United States Navy EOD Technician, a warrior, professional Sailor and guardian of life.
I willfully accept the danger of my chosen profession and will accomplish all duties my great country asks of me.
I follow in the wake of those who have served before me with uncommon valor. I was born from the bombs and mines of the blitzkrieg. I have cleared the world’s sea lanes and fought in the jungles, deserts and mountains around the globe.
I will never disgrace the Navy EOD Warriors of the past and will uphold their honor and memory, both on and off the battlefield.
I am a quiet professional! I strive to excel in every art and artifice of war. I adapt to every situation and will overcome all obstacles. I will never fail those who depend upon me.
I maintain my mind, body, and equipment in the highest state of readiness that is worthy of the most elite Warrior.
I will defeat my enemies’ spirit because my spirit is stronger. I will defeat my enemies’ weapons because I know my enemies’ weapons better.
I will complete every mission with honor, courage, and commitment. Though I may be alone and completely isolated, I will trust my teammates and my country. I will never give up and I will never surrender.
Where most strive and train to get it right, I will relentlessly train so I never get it wrong.
I am a United States Navy EOD Technician.
