Story by: Spc. Joshua Edwards
2nd Cavalry Regiment Public Affairs

ROSE BARRACKS, Germany – A great way to gain a wider perspective on tactics and skills that must be had in order to overcome obstacles and challenges on today’s modern battlefield could be to train with military forces from other countries.

The 2nd Cavalry Regiment and other units with U.S. Army Europe participated in a Decisive Action Training Environment (D.A.T.E.) rotation with multinational partners Oct. 13 through the 31 between the Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels Training Areas.

The exercise, Saber Junction, had a maneuver-rights area that expanded approximately 2,200 square kilometers and hosted more than 3600 2CR troops and 1700 foreign military personnel from 18 countries which makes it the biggest training event of this type for USAREUR since 1989.

2d Cavalry Regiment Public Affairs

ROSE BARRACKS, Germany – The 2d Cavalry Regiment will host the Expert Field Medical Badge competition Sept. 11 through Sept. 21 at the Grafenwoehr training area.

More than 250 candidates from U.S. Army Europe including 18 multinational participants from Slovenia, United Kingdom, Germany, Estonia and Italy will compete in the 11-day challenge. The EFMB gives 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.

The 2CR non-commissioned officer in charge of regimental medical operations, Sgt. 1st Class Richard Stickels, explains the level of difficulty and importance the EFMB represents.

“The Expert Field Medical Badge, in terms of medical proficiency, is a symbol of excellence, Stickels said. “It is the most strenuous competition medical personnel can participate in.”

The EFMB competition will not only allow U.S. and partner nations to train together but also deploy and conduct medical operations in support of ISAF and other world-wide contingency missions.
