Did You Know...

This is part of our ongoing series called Did You Know?

This series, which you can follow by clicking on the labels/categories in our sidebar, will give you interesting facts about all things military.

At eMail Our Military (eMOM) we want to do more than help support our troops, we want to educate people and help them understand about all things military. We realize that when you know more about a specific group, you'll be better able to understand them and in turn better equipped to relate to them.

IED: Did you know that an IED, or Improvised Explosive Device, is a “homemade” device that is designed to cause death or injury by using explosives alone or in combination with toxic chemicals, biological agents, or radiological material? IEDs may be detonated by a suicide bomber or remotely detonated. They may utilize commercial or military explosives, homemade explosives, or military ordnance and ordnance components.

Now you know!
