Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Soldiers and civilians from Blanchfield Army Community Hospital volunteered at Clarksville, Tennessee’s Northeast Middle School, recently as part of the Partners in Education initiative where local organizations support schools in the community.

“The Partners in Education program is a way for the units on Fort Campbell to integrate into the community by way of volunteering with the on-post and off-post schools. Primarily the units ‘adopt’ an entire school, but BACH has adopted a specific classroom,” said Staff Sgt. Jamie Hendzel, a BACH Soldier who coordinated the monthly visit. “For me, I get excited just to hang out with these kids. By visiting them specifically, it makes more of an impact I think.”
