Getting Ready To Suit me up

Explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) specialists are the mix of the best tactical and technical training the Army and civilian academia can provide. They are prepared to perform missions in support of Army units worldwide, across all operational environments. They put their lives on the line making insane calculations and solving problems as they work. They are one of the only branches that is told to use common sense..

Those who want to serve must first take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery and pass.
Job training for an explosive ordnance disposal specialist requires 10 weeks Basic Combat Training and 39 weeks of Advanced Individual training at Fort Lee, VA. AKA Bomb Shcool.

There are a ton of Layers and BLAKE is showing us

You need to be very educated to do this job- Math, Chemistry, Robotics are just the tip of the ice burg.

We got to see the robots and learned men and women have different controls for the robot- Men like twisty paddles and women like joysticks... I'm Serious- This was researched but I or any pervert could have told you that!
