Soldiers of 561st Engineer Company, 84th Eng. Battalion, 130th Eng. Brigade, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, recently returned, here, from the National Training Center (NTC) at Fort Irwin, Calif., where they increased their readiness and assisted the 2nd Heavy Bde. Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, with its preparation for an upcoming deployment.
During the course of the last several months, two MEDEVAC companies in Task Force Hammerhead, Company C, 3rd Battalion, 25th Aviation Regiment, and Company C, 1st Battalion, 169th Aviation Regiment, Army National Guard, have participated in a trial program developed by the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade that enables flight medics to administer blood products to wounded soldiers during the soldiers’ en-route flight care and movement to a medical facility.
All of that hard work was the last thing on their minds as they saw their families and friends for the first time in many months.
