Bomb Disposal School in Besmaya, Iraq. I got an awesome picture of myself with this guy in the background ... Yep, the bomb squad just 50 yards from me.

What does THIS do? by *HandBanana001 is a tribute to all of these specialists who risk their lives to make us safer everyday, and also to that movie that won today at that award show. As for this photographer, rest well, dear brother.

Please Do Not Politicize This Image.

I'm sure I'm mistaken: Is that an iPhone attached to his wrist?!

Not an iPhone, it's a wrist mounted computer. Worked with EOD.

I find it hard not to politicize a picture of a soldier with a politicizing caption. :\

Hurt Locker is a horrible representation of EOD and all the soldiers who are EOD techs.

However... I like this picture a lot. Good job.
