From Blanchfield Army Community Hospital

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – It was a great day for 17-year old Alan Saucer recently when he received his second dose of the COVID-19 Coronavirus vaccine at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH).

The high school student chose to get vaccinated after speaking with his parents and his primary care manager from Blanchfield’s Screaming Eagle Medical Home.

“I decided to take the vaccine because it’s a quality of life reassurance that I’ll have a reduced risk of getting COVID,” said Saucer, who has an underlying medical condition that may put him at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Calling Out Biden’s Anti-Family Agenda

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – President Joe Biden and D.C. politicians want to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars to incentivize dependency on the federal government. To accomplish this, they will take even more money out of Tennesseans’ hard-earned paychecks.

The so-called ‘American Families Plan’ that Joe Biden’s team created for him will replace community with collectivism. Each program is just one more avenue for the government to gain a foothold into our homes. I will not stand by while Joe Biden and Kamala Harris attempt to gain control over Tennessee families.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – Soldiers from Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH) recently participated in K9 Tactical Combat Casualty Care to enhance their ability to provide point of injury care to military working dogs in a deployed environment.

“Our 68Ws (combat medical specialists) are on the front lines and so are our military working dogs, and often we are not. So when those military working dogs are hurt in the line of fire, the first person to see them and get hands on them are our medics. So it’s important for the [medics] to know when they have this injured military working dog, what they can do and how they can save this dog’s life.” said Capt. Michael Hoffman, an Army veterinarian assigned to the Fort Campbell Veterinary Center, one of six veterinary staff who conducted the training.
