Unexploded Ordnance or UXO:
JBLM has a long history of using military munitions for live-fire training. Explosives items that are used but fail to function as intended are called Unexploded Ordnance or UXO. Research has shown a large amount of JBLM property was used to conduct and support live-fire training in the past. This has resulted in the possibility of encountering UXO in areas that are not marked and may not appear hazardous. The Army's UXO Safety program is designed to educate military personnel and civilians alike about the potential hazards associated with UXO. For more information on training, click here.
