MORE ABOUT THE EFMB
The 421st Medical Battalion (Multifunctional), 30th Medical Brigade, will host the U.S. Army Europe Expert Field Medical Badge 2016 competition which takes place throughout March at Baumholder Training Area, Germany. More than 190 candidates from 9 different countries will compete for the badge during 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 which makes the EFMB a qualification that stands out 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.
