BACH recognizes namesake Florence Blanchfield for Women’s Equality Day

 

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – As the nation celebrates Women’s Equality Day, August 26th, 2020, Blanchfield Army Community Hospital on Fort Campbell, Kentucky stands as a lasting tribute to a trailblazer in Army Medicine and public service.

“Our hospital was named after Col. Florence A. Blanchfield and her story is amazing. She was known and respected for her commitment to the care of Soldiers and transforming the Army Nurse Corps to better serve the nation’s wounded. She reported to the office of the Superintendent of the Army Nurse Corps as a captain in 1935 where she had the opportunity to help shape policy, but that was just the beginning of her sentinel achievements for the Army Nurse Corps,” said Col. Patrick T. Birchfield, Blanchfield Army Community Hospital commander.

Col. Florence A. Blanchfield joined the Army during World War I and the influenza pandemic of 1918 that killed an estimated 50 million people around the world. She went on to lead the Army Nurse Corps during World War II, placing nurses in combat zones because that is where their care was needed in order to save service members’ lives. In return for their dedication, she championed and obtained equal rank, pay and benefits for nurses while helping pave the way for women to follow. (U.S. Army photo)

Memorial Day 2018: Remembering the Ultimate Sacrifice made in Afghanistan

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Jared Duhon
438th Air Expeditionary Wing

U.S. Air ForceKabul, Afghanistan – Memorial Day is a day to ensure those who have fallen are never forgotten. And whether a few years, 20 years, or more, there can never be enough thanks given for those 13 who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan this past year.

Remembering those 13 warriors, who fought for what was right and were sadly taken from the fight too early, is a small token of appreciation that can be given. It only takes a moment to think about the lives these people might have lived, each different from the last and yet all still had the same goal of making a better place for those who cannot fight. This small gesture will ensure that their contribution to the missions they fought for will not go in vain.
