44th Medical Brigade hosts Expert Field Medical Badge Competition

By Sgt. Dustin BivenNovember 9, 2018

All Soldiers competing for the Expert Field Medical Badge must disassemble and reassemble an M4 rifle successfully in order to better their chances at earning their EFMB. The first week of testing introduces the candidates to all the tasks that they'll be expected to complete to earn the coveted badge. The EFMB was established to showcase and recognize medical Soldiers for their exceptional skill level and competence in the medical field. The testing consists of a written exam, land navigation, three separate combat testing lanes and concludes with a 12-mile ruck march. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
