Soldiers and Airmen from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Explosive Ordnance Disposal units conducted an exercise March 22 through 25 in partnership with EOD personnel with the Anchorage Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.
“The overall scenario was an extremist group attempting to gain access to the base and have a sustained bombing campaign within the cantonment area,” said Sgt. 1st Class Joshuah Edmonds of U.S. Army Alaska's 716th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company. “We linked it in to the recent anti-extremism training and kept that flavor.”
