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.
