A Black Hawk man is leading soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the military - disabling roadside bombs in Afghanistan.
U.S. Army Lt. Col. Bobby Sadler says that it's a dream job.
Sadler says assuming command of Explosive Ordnance Disposal forces was a pivotal moment in his career and life. He says the weight of the responsibility is felt daily.
Sadler's wife, Marie, says she's proud of her husband but also counting the days until he returns home. She says a couple of times their Internet calls have been interrupted by rocket attacks.
Sadler enlisted in the Mississippi National Guard shortly after his 18th birthday and served nearly five years before earning a commission in the regular Army.
