Show Notes

Enjoy the interview with CMSgt (RET) Linda Cox who was the first female EOD Technician in the military.  A native to both Oklahoma and Texas, Linda enlisted in the Air Force in 1971.  Several years into her Air Force enlistment, a fellow airman dared her to apply for EOD School and the rest is history! Linda gives great perspective on fate, accomplishments and philosophy on life.  She is close to officially retiring after over 40 years of service both in EOD and UXO career field. Her life long love of  learning and curious nature will continue to fill her cup, long after she retires!
