R3 is proud of its history of giving back to the community we serve by hosting and supporting a variety of Explosive Ordnance Disposal Warrior Foundation (EODWF) programs like the 2020 EOD Memorial Ball, of which R3 is a “Master Blaster” sponsor. While this year’s EOD Memorial Weekend events have gone Virtual due to the outbreak and uncertain circumstances surrounding Coronavirus, R3 is dedicated to adding our unwavering support to the Foundation’s programs and EOD Families’ most in need.

We hope you will all join us to watch, honor, and remember.
R3 Principal Mark Sanders, along with a team of riders to include our accounting firm LevitZacks, rode in the 25-mile bicycling event which started inside Petco Park, crossed the Coronado Bay Bridge, and then circumnavigated the San Diego Bay to raise funds for local cancer research.
R3’s Ken Normand, Program Manager for International Military Training, was the guest speaker for a retirement ceremony for LT Jeff Shultz, USN EOD, held onboard the USS MIDWAY museum. Attended by EOD technicians from across the country, the ceremony culminated 23 years of service for Jeff who hails from a long line of veterans. His father is a retired USN EOD Master Chief. Ken relayed a number of “November Sierra” stories about Jeff’s white-hat days and held the audience in both laughter and pride. R3 wishes LT Shultz fair winds and following seas in his new life and thanks him for over two decades of service.
