A candidate plots points on a map he must find at a night land navigation course during the Expert Field Medical Badge competition in Grafenwoehr, Germany, Sept. 8. Before the EFMB candidates take the actual testing they all must go through the standardization phase. During this portion the service members are taught what they must do at each of the different lanes so they understand what to expect before the actual testing phase. Passing rates for the badge range from 5-25 percent of candidates, making the EFMB a distinctive mark in a Soldier's records.
