Zero Point Incorporated is proud to support retired Virginia State Police Bomb Technician Bobby Klepper in raising awareness and showing support for the EOD Warrior Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides support and services for active duty EOD operators, wounded veterans, and the families of fallen warriors.
On November 1, 2015, Bobby Klepper, who served with Virginia State Police for 34 years, will ride cross-country from Virginia Beach, VA all the way to San Diego, CA by way of motorcycle while wearing a bomb suit. During the three-week long ride, Klepper will make stops into several cities as riders join him along the journey to show support. The “Long Ride” refers to the moment when an EOD technician walks from his command post to the incident site. Klepper hopes to bring national attention to EOD heroes who have and continue to risk their lives for the security of our nation every day. Klepper’s goal is to raise at least $250,000 for the EOD Warrior Foundation. Zero Point, with deep roots in the close-knit EOD community, achieved Master Blaster Sponsor level having donated $5,000 to the fundraising event.
