Get a U.S. Half Dollar Enhanced to Honor the Iraq War
This Mystic-exclusive US half dollar pictures a member of an explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) team investigating an enemy artillery position. Uncovering and disposing of bombs is dangerous work. Specialists go through rigorous training on how to disarm various types of explosives, and how to set them off from a safe distance using robots (or even a more cost-effective toy car).
Among their tasks were disabling roadside IEDs, investigating the aftermath of roadside car bombings, and going house to house to find bombmakers before they could attack. In addition to disabling and investigating, these troops had to work quickly, as they would often come under fire.
