Scrapbook of COL Thomas Kane
This is the scrapbook of COL Thomas Kane – the father of the Explosive Ordnance Department. Kane was born in 1900, became a reservist in 1924 and joined the active force in 1941. The Battle of Britain forced the Allies to create a dedicated bomb disposal unit. Kane oversaw the development of today’s EOD. He perfected the training and the tools of the trade of what was then the US Army Bomb Disposal. While we are well known for our tank collection, the Training and Heritage Center has over 13,000 micro artifacts – and this is one of them. A beautiful time capsule, this journal / scrapbook covers Kane’s active duty time with the Army, 1941 – 1955. Included among the pages of pictures, post cards, newspaper clippings and menus is a pristine, true copy of the approved SSI of the Bomb Disposal School.
Demilitarizing ammunition in support of Operation New Dawn
The explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) field has experienced an exponential increase in size and visibility in the last 10 years. The reason for this increase is the enemy's reliance on the improvised explosive device (IED) as the weapon of choice against U.S. and coalition forces. The continued use of IEDs will likely require EOD units to remain focused on counter-IED operations.
