Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – A Fort Campbell Warrior Transition Battalion Soldier was one of 13 medics honored at nearby Valor Hall Tuesday during the 7th Annual Armed Services YMCA Angels of the Battlefield event featuring decorated Army veteran, Noah Galloway, as keynote speaker.

Medics save lives on the battlefield and are often referred to as “Doc” by their peers. Sgt. 1st Class Robert Ernest Minor was no exception to this worthy title.

Minor was the team sergeant in charge of training and leading medics at Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan from May 2010 to May 2011.

Fort Campbell, KY – “The intent of the train-up was to engross the medics with the skills needed to earn the badge, to show them what right looks like and to give them a basic understanding of what they will see at EFMB,” said Sgt. 1st Class Scott Greene, “Bastogne” medical operations noncommissioned officer in charge.

“[Participants] will see the lanes once, that’s it, and then they’ll be expected five to seven days later to test on that lane and get a ‘go’ on it. It’s not very feasible, so we devised this plan to train as many medics across the brigade in a format that allowed them to see the tasks and perform it on an simulated casualty as many times as needed to understand it,” stated Greene.

Paktya Province, Afghanistan – As dust blows wildly through Combat Outpost Champkani, Afghanistan; the mixture of sand between the helicopter landing zone and the small COP makes it ideal for miniature dust storms.

The closest building to the landing zone is the Aid station, set up for any type of emergency. On the outside, it’s covered with Afghan dirt and dust, but on the inside, it’s a clean, well kept medical facility.
