Fort Campbell, KY – Reuniting with a long-lost friend is a good thing, but reuniting with a brother can save a life.
Veterans of B Company, 2nd Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, reunited with the help of the Independence Fund in Nashville, Tennessee, September 26th-29th, in hopes of maintaining their “brotherly” connections for life support.
“This has been the best experience for me since I got out [the Army],” said Wesley Rogers, a reunion attendee. “The one thing that I noticed when I got here is how much better I felt looking in the faces of all these people, verses when I was at home and I’d let all these people go by.”

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