Fedder, an EOD technincan with 1st EOD Company, 1st MLG (FWD), loved his job as an EOD technician and as a Marine.
“Fedder was the ultimate jarhead” said Master Sgt. Alonza I. MendozaValencia, EOD chief for 1st EOD Co., 1st MLG (FWD). “He was always squared away. He was the model Marine, and he took care of his men.”
Fedder, from Pine City, Minn., had an eye for details that many others would miss, said co-workers.
