On order, EODMU FIVE deploys and employs tailored EOD units to locate, identify, render safe and remove conventional, chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological, and improvised explosive hazards in order to enable access for joint, naval, and special operations forces within the Western Pacific Theater of Operations and elsewhere, when directed.
EODMU FIVE is the premier EOD Mobile Unit, integral to the Joint Force Commander and renowned for bar none EOD expertise and professionalism. We are tactically proficient, and strategically minded; we think inclusively and act deliberately.
We exist to prevent and when necessary, fight and win our Nation's wars. Never forget this. We must be combat ready so that we may be combat proven. As "iron sharpens iron", we ready each other. Amidst uncertainty and risk, we will be known for our certitude and readiness.
It is all about credibility. Our credibility is our lifeblood: we either have it or not. My credibility is in your hands as much as your credibility is in my hands. Credibility comes only from trust; trust comes only from relationships. Credibility assures our freedom of maneuver. There is nothing more precious than our credibility.
Strive always to see and understand the bigger picture. Leadership is a function of one's willingness and ability to learn. Know yourself, understand your biases. Attitude is everything; attitude is a choice. Our attitude dictates our thoughts, from our thoughts come our words and actions.
Priority #1 is keeping our priorities straight. I will always emphasize process over product so that we think and act deliberately and systematically. That which is routine must remain routine so that we can be ready for that which is emergent. We say what we do and do what we say.
Team -- It is more a verb than it is a noun. It is about doing, not about being. The fastest way to be successful is to help others succeed. Both as individuals and as a command, we enable and we support others' success. We communicate and collaborate continuously and effectively. We will, in all things, be characterized by our tenacity, perseverance and resolve. We loathe complacency. We challenge each other's presumption of success in order to hone our edge. Our competitive advantage is our unity of effort, our unity of focus and our unity of purpose. We tirelessly team each and every day.
