The 212th Combat Support Hospital (CSH), 30th Medical Brigade, hosts this year’s U.S. Army Europe Expert Field Medical Badge competition Sept. 4-9, 2014, at the Grafenwoehr training area. More than 260 candidates from U.S. forces in Europe including nine multinational participants from United Kingdom and Belgium are competing in the five-day challenge.

The test is a rigorous evaluation of mental and physical skills and earning the badge requires a high degree of ability and focus. Passing rates range from 5-25 percent, making the EFMB a distinctive mark in a Soldier's records. The EFMB also provides multinational and U.S. service members the opportunity to train together and to gain a greater understanding of their abilities while building more competent and confident Soldiers.
