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.”

Fort Sill Public Affairs

U.S. ArmyFort Sill, OK – In recent weeks, the fields of Fort Sill were peppered with the typical sounds made by counter rocket artillery mortar. However, the unit conducting C-RAM were preparing for an atypical mission.

Soldiers in 2nd Battalion, 44th Air Defense Artillery are deploying to serve as a total fires integrated package under a field artillery division, 101st Airborne Division, with a field artillery battery attached to them.

“The C-RAM mission is expanding. Our formation was not big enough to encompass all the mission requirements for that. [Forces Command] recently attached a field artillery battery out of Fort Carson to us to make up the difference in what we need,” said Lt. Col. Ryan Schrock, 2-44th ADA commander.

U.S. Army Warrior Care and Transition

U.S. Army Warrior Care and TransitionArlington, VA – For U.S. Army Spc. Mitchell Bombeck, joining the military was a no brainer. It’s a family tradition.

The self-proclaimed farm boy from Minnesota became an all-wheel diesel mechanic in the Forward Support Company, 682nd Engineer Battalion in the Minnesota National Guard.

At six feet and two inches tall, weighing 230 pounds, it would seem tough to break such a solid man, but it happened.
