The headquarters detachment of the Washington National Guard’s 741st Ordnance Battalion – the unit does explosive ordnance disposal – has been alerted for possible mobilization and deployment, Camp Murray said this morning.

The detachment is comprised of about 25 soldiers based in Tacoma. They provide command and control of other bomb squads.

A National Guard spokesman said no word yet on whether the alert will turn into an actual mobilization, or where the unit might be sent if they get the callup.
