About the 763D Ordnance Company (EOD)

The 763D Ordnance Company (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) is Fort Leonard Wood’s premier provider of training, advisement, and emergency response to UXO and other explosive hazards. The 763D Ordnance Company (EOD) is part of the 242ND Ordnance Battalion (EOD) under the 71st Ordnance Group (EOD) out of Fort Carson Colorado, but locally falls under the 787th Military Police Battalion, 14th Military Police Brigade at Fort Leonard Wood.

The 763D OD CO (EOD) is a deployable FORSCOM unit tasked to provide EOD support to multi-domain operations by detecting, identifying, conducting on-site evaluation, rendering safe, exploitation, and disposal or disposition of explosive ordnance (EOD) including chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN), weapons of mass destruction (WMD). We provide support to joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational operations as required.

The 63D Ordnance Bomb Disposal Squad was activated 31 October 1943 at Alpine, New Jersey.  From February of 1944 to January of 1946, the 63D provided bomb disposal support to the seaport and city of Baltimore, Maryland. During this short time, the unit inspected 119 ships returning from the war, responded to 55 bomb calls, and disposed of 3,293,057 explosive-filled items.  The unit was deactivated on 3 January 1946, but was redesignated the 63D Explosive Ordnance Disposal Squad and allocated to the active Army on 22 January 1951.

In March of 1952, the 63D EOD Squad was relocated to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, making it one of the longest serving units on the installation today. Redesignated the 763D Ordnance Company (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) in 1997, the unit has continued to serve both at home and abroad.
