Bomb squad experts from the Air Force, Army, and the Albuquerque Police Department have teamed up to assemble beeping Easter eggs for children to hunt who are blind or visually impaired.
Families attended the inaugural event Saturday, April 15th at the USS Bullhead Memorial Park in the Tri-Cities Washington area.
“We tried to build an assembly line, and it’s going pretty well,” said Air Force Tech Sgt. John Johnson. “We’re building some pretty in-depth circuits.”
He learned about a similar event hosted by the bomb squad in South Carolina and thought they could implement one in their region.
“I was wondering if our community had a need for that,” Johnson said.
One of the people attending the event is Adam Buckner who plans on taking his 5-year-old son Tyler, according to KRQE.
“We need more of it. You know, these kids just want to be normal and…” Buckner said, pausing as he began to tear up. “It’s just really sweet.”
