Friends of Crab Zone

EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF)

The EODWF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which serves the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran wounded, injured or ill EOD warriors, families of our wounded and fallen EOD warriors and by maintaining the EOD Memorial.  A portion of every sale will be donated to the EOD Warrior Foundation as our way of continuing to give back to the EOD community throughout the year.

Bomb Tech Memorial Foundation (BTMF)

The Bomb Technician Memorial Foundation (BTMF) was created to honor bomb technicians who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It honors bomb technicians that have been killed in the line of duty while operating in their capacity as a public safety bomb technician. The memorial dedicated to these fallen heroes was created in 2007. By placing the memorial at the FBI’s Hazardous Devices School at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, the memorial serves as a constant reminder to all public safety bomb technicians of what these brave technicians sacrificed for our country.

EOD MasterBlasters, Inc.

The EOD MasterBlasters, Inc., was established over 20 years ago as an association to provide support to members of the active duty Air Force EOD community in times of need.  Additionally, their support has extended to AD and retired EOD non-members of the association.  Since OIF/OEF, the MasterBlasters have begun assisting our EOD Wounded Warriors and have taken a role to provide support to the families of our fallen brothers and sisters.

Did you know the MasterBlasters, Inc., is NOT JUST FOR MASTER BADGE-WEARING TECHS and it’s open to other service EOD personnel as well?  I highly encourage you to download their application and become a member today!  If for no other reason than to maintain a connection with techs you worked with in the past.  Learn more on their Facebook page or sign up today.

Bunny Pottery

DS Art

After earning various degrees and completing an internship at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Don Stewart discharged himself just in time to avoid a lucrative surgical career. Every one of Don Stewart’s intriguing composite images is drawn entirely by hand, using an ordinary ballpoint pen. Each drawing begins with a pencil sketch, and a long list of possible ingredients. In a process that takes from one to (let's say many) months to complete, Don carefully researches each subject, and considers dozens of ideas and compositions before finally putting ink to paper.

Pledge Allegiance Flag Company

Founded in 2017 by a 20-year Air Force veteran firefighter/EMT and his wife, the Pledge Allegiance Flag Company makes hand-crafted, beautiful rustic wooden American flags and coin racks. Over the last few years, they have grown to offer more than 200 varieties of these handsome, one-of-a-kind treasures. Check them out also on Facebook.
