101st Airborne Division Screaming Eagles put skills to test for Expert Field Medical Badge at Fort Campbell

 

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – More than 100 Screaming Eagles began preparation November 18th to test their skills in the medical field and earn an Expert Field Medical Badge.

“It is by standard one of the hardest badges to earn across the Army,” said Maj. Sarah Burlee, medical operations officer for 101st Airborne Division Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), and officer in charge of EFMB testing. “Not everyone can be an expert.”

Experts are considered to be at the top of their fields. For Soldiers who earn the EFMB this is no different.

“It was built statistically so that your top percentages earn the EFMB,” Burlee said. “It’s not your medium block, not your top-half block, it’s the top block.”

Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Soldiers from the Fort Campbell – based 531st Hospital Center, seven subordinate units and Blanchfield Army Community Hospital participated in a field exercise recently, allowing them to test Army Medicine’s new field hospital platform.

In 2017, the Army’s combat support hospitals began transitioning to a new, more modular 32-bed field hospital that can be expanded incrementally to 148 beds, with a suite of medical and dental services to choose from. Its design gives medical planners more flexibility in sending only the modules and personnel it needs for the mission.

RakkasanFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – As a convoy of Humvees travels across the dusty plains, Sgt. Jarrod Stegall scans for potential threats. Suddenly his vehicle comes to a halt as a pickup truck comes out from behind a building. Recognizing it as an insurgent vehicle, the vehicle commander shouts to Stegall, “Enemy vehicle 400 meters!”

Receiving the command, he adjusts his traverse and elevation mechanism to the correct settings and engages the target. A few rounds later, the enemy vehicle is destroyed and he radios the vehicle commander to confirm the kill. Satisfied with the engagement the vehicle commander orders the convoy to keep moving.

Sgt. Jarrod Stegall, a vehicle crew member with the 626th Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, scans for targets during a simulated convoy here July 16, 2015. Stegall conducted training on the 3rd Brigade Combat Team’s unstabilized gunnery trainer-individual, the first of its kind in the active component Army, which allows unit master gunners to build scenarios for crew gunners to virtually engage targets and validate them before conducting live-fire gunnery tables.
