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.

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationBaltimore, MD – Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have discovered that the universe is expanding 5 percent to 9 percent faster than expected.

“This surprising finding may be an important clue to understanding those mysterious parts of the universe that make up 95 percent of everything and don’t emit light, such as dark energy, dark matter and dark radiation,” said study leader and Nobel Laureate Adam Riess of the Space Telescope Science Institute and Johns Hopkins University, both in Baltimore, Maryland.
