UXO disposal

Col. Kelly Fletcher, 18th Mission Support Group commander, talks to the EOD team lead over the radio during a UXO disposal operation Oct. 19 at Kadena Air Base, Japan. Col. Fletcher, along with members of the 18th Security Forces Squadron and 18th Wing Public Affairs, worked out of the joint command center established by Kadena Town officials to coordinate the operation, which required evacuation of nearby off-base homes and a brief stoppage of traffic on Highway 58, which runs alongside the base. Kadena EOD specialists removed the UXO and destroyed it on the EOD range without incident. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj. John Hutcheson)
