Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Lacking only the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s red carpet, Veteran filmmakers were stars in their own rights as a four-day “I Was There” Film Workshop culminated in a packed-house screening event at Cole Park Commons Thursday.

With a unique approach to treating the psychological damages of war, the free workshop encouraged Soldiers to share their experiences through mentored filmmaking classes at Fort Campbell’s Warrior Transition Battalion.

Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Despite her young age and small stature, a rather modest and unassuming 11-year-old girl became one of the unlikeliest heroes last month as she sprang into action, performing the Heimlich maneuver on her choking father.

For her lifesaving actions, sixth-grade student Holly Widen was recognized at Fort Campbell’s Wassom Middle School March 26th, and received a coin and Certificate of Appreciation from Blanchfield Army Community Hospital Commander Col. George N. Appenzeller. The commander and Emergency Medical Services staff members, one of whom responded to the 911 call, lauded Holly’s actions.
