In the shadows of the world’s most perilous threats, the US Army’s Nuclear Disablement Teams (NDTs) stand vigilant, a silent shield against the specter of nuclear devastation.

On the testing grounds of Aberdeen, Maryland, these unsung heroes have been sharpening their skills, ensuring they’re ready to counter the dark tide of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) that looms on the horizon.

Training for the Unthinkable

NDT 2, one of these elite squads, recently took to the field for a series of grueling exercises.

It’s not your average training exercise; these drills are about mastering the art of nuclear disablement, a chess game against the most destructive forces known to man.

Capt. John M. Prevost, a well known name among names in the Explosive Ordnance Disposal circles, laid it out straight – this isn’t just training; it’s about understanding the enemy’s playbook, down to the last dirty trick.

“This training event is critical to the success of the NDTs, as conducting disablement operations is one of our core tasks,” said Prevost in a statement.

“This course allows NDT personnel to see the effects of each tool on a given target material, thus revealing planning considerations and limitations for use in expeditionary operations,” he added.

What’s an NDT, you ask? Picture a team that’s part bomb squad, part detective, and all nerve.
