Our Team

Mark Fogle

Owner, Crab Zone LLC

Mark retired from the military and EOD after 23 years of service and is a proud co-owner of Crab Zone, LLC. His career within EOD took him from being an E-3/team member straight out of EOD School and culminated as the Commander of the AF Detachment at NAVSCOLEOD. During his time in the AF, he had the privilege of working with some of the finest men and women within the career field and from all four branches of service. His drive to take care of them transcends past his military service and it’s this desire which led him to start up Crab Zone, LLC. Wanting to bring an updated look and feel to EOD products and memorabilia, he believes in providing the community with the products and services they want. “Crab Zone is starting out small, but give us time and keep checking back with us…I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed!” The EOD community is a proud, distinguished and close-knit family which deserves only the best.

 

Angelia Fogle

Co-Owner, Crab Zone LLC

 

Angelia is Mark’s proud wife and mother of their boys, Robert and Michael. She is a retired Chief Master Sergeant but began her career as an active duty EOD Tech for nearly eight years before transitioning to the Air Force Reserves. She steadily progressed through the ranks, spending time as a First Sergeant and culminated her career as the Superintendent of the 919 SOLRS. She never forgot her roots and continues to share Mark’s vision of bringing a newer look and feel to EOD products and memorabilia.

Jenn McIlwain

Office Manager & Purveyor of Sanity

 

Jenn is the proud wife of an EOD Tech and a tremendous asset to the Crab Zone family. After spending 6.5 years as an active duty Air Force Comm troop, she decided to be a full time wife and mother. When her daughter turned 3, she decided to return to the workforce where she spent 1.5 years as an IT contractor. When her husband cross-trained into EOD, she found an opportunity to work for an on-line retailer where she learned about e-commerce and the finer points of retail sales. Jenn joined the Crab Zone family shortly before the 2016 EOD Memorial week and she hit the ground running; helping us meet our deadlines and proving her worth time and again. She’s currently working towards completing her BAS in business, hoping to be done before her son graduates from HS!
