Mark Fogle, Owner, Crab Zone LLC
Mark retired from the military and EOD after 23 years of service and is the proud owner of Crab Zone, LLC. His career within EOD took him from being an E-3/team member straight out of EOD School and culminated as the Commander of the AF Detachment at NAVSCOLEOD. During his time in the AF, he had the privilege of working with some of the finest men and women within the career field and from all four branches of service. His drive to take care of them transcends past his military service and it’s this desire which led him to start up Crab Zone, LLC. Wanting to bring an updated look and feel to EOD products and memorabilia, he believes in providing the community with the products and services they want. “Crab Zone is starting out small, but give us time and keep checking back with us…I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed!” The EOD community is a proud, distinguished and close-knit family which deserves only the best.

Angelia is Mark’s proud wife and mother of their boys, Robert and Michael. She currently serves in the Air Force Reserves but started out as an active duty EOD Tech for nearly eight years. She joined the Reserves when she and Mark started their family and after six years as a Supply Technician, she proudly put on the diamond to be an Air Force First Sergeant. After five years, she was promoted to the rank of Chief Master Sergeant and is the Superintendent for the 919 SOLRS.

Jenn is the proud wife of an EOD Tech and a tremendous asset to the Crab Zone family. After spending 6.5 years as an active duty Air Force Comm troop, she decided to be a full time wife and mother. When her daughter turned 3, she decided to return to the workforce where she spent 1.5 years as an IT contractor. When her husband cross-trained into EOD, she found an opportunity to work for an on-line retailer where she learned about e-commerce and the finer points of retail sales. Jenn joined the Crab Zone family shortly before the 2016 EOD Memorial week and she hit the ground running; helping us meet our deadlines and proving her worth time and again. She’s currently working towards completing her BAS in business, hoping to be done before her son graduates from HS!
