EODMU 2 Holds Change of Command

EODMU 2 Holds Change of Command

Story by CPO Jeff Atherton on 04/26/2019

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 2 held a change of command ceremony aboard Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story during which Cmdr. Clint Cornell relieved Cmdr. Jon Haase as commanding officer, April 26.

The ceremony was the culmination of two years at the helm of EODMU 2 where he oversaw manning, training and equipping units of action, deploying 19 companies and platoons in support of U.S. 5th Fleet, U.S. 6th Fleet and U.S. Special Operations Command.

“These warriors are adaptive and effective, and that is a testament to the Mobile Unit 2 Sailors’ hard work and dedication to the mission on a daily basis,” Haase said in his remarks.

Under his leadership, the command executed groundbreaking EOD operations, which included the largest exploitation and disposal of biological warfare agents in the history of the war on terrorism and the successful execution of an expeditionary mine countermeasures operation in support of the security of U.S. strategic forces.

Following his remarks, Cornell formally assumed command from Haase.

“I am humbled by the opportunity and honor to serve as your commanding officer,” Cornell said to the command. “I am excited about the path we are on, and I promise to always give my best to complete any mission that the Navy and the nation task of us to do.”

EODMU 2 provides credible, combat-ready EOD forces capable of deploying anywhere, any time in support of national interests.
