U.S. Navy explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) technicians conduct free-fall parachute jumps during flight operations with the Spanish navy over Rota, Spain on February. 13, 2020.

EOD technicians are the folks who dismantle bombs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). And you thought jumping out of an airplane was dangerous. They do this “inherently dangerous job” on land, at sea and under the sea. Sometimes they have to drop in from the skies to get to work.
