More than 70,000 American Soldiers boarded transports destined for the shores of North Africa, and the men of the 1/1 were among them. The Soldiers loaded their light tanks aboard three oil tankers that had been converted into the first landing ships (LSTs) of the war, under the flag of the Royal Navy. The Soldiers were unaware of their destination as the convoy set out for Oran, Algeria, escorted by five armed trawlers.

As we officially kick off our #Operation_Torch remembrance and celebration, we are reminded that the Soldiers of Operation Torch did not know where they were headed or what they would do when they arrived after departing England. All the brave #IronSoldiers knew was that they were headed to defend the nation against its enemies.

We encourage all units to reflect on these sacrifices made, the selfless service exhibited, and the loyalty of the first troops of #OldIronsides today. Make sure to check back this afternoon for a special message from 1st Armored Division's current Commanding General, Major General Sean C. Bernabe!

October 30, 2020 -- Press Release:

WBAMC transfers non-COVID patients to Brooke Army Medical Center

FORT BLISS, Texas – William Beaumont Army Medical Center (WBAMC) continues to support the City of El Paso, Texas with the surge of COVID-19 patients by proactively transferring some non-COVID patients to Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in anticipation of a continued increase in the number of patients requiring hospitalization.

Patients hospitalized at WBAMC with non-COVID medical conditions requiring a prolonged hospital stay are being offered the opportunity to voluntarily transfer to BAMC in San Antonio, which will make those beds available for patients requiring shorter
hospitalizations.

“As the demand for inpatient hospital beds in the city of El Paso continues to rise, we are admitting increasing numbers of our Department of Defense (DOD) and Veteran’s Administration (VA) beneficiaries to WBAMC. Given that we anticipate this demand
will continue to rise, we want to proactively ensure that WBAMC will always have beds available,” said Col. Michael S. Oshiki, WBAMC hospital commander. “We are thankful for our partners at BAMC who are working closely with us to ensure that our
patients have a seamless continuity of care.”

WBAMC has been coordinating with local hospitals to transfer eligible DOD and VA patients from their facilities to the military treatment facility on Fort Bliss.

WBAMC will continue to accept the transfer of all eligible patients, to include COVID positive patients. The medical center is staffed and equipped to handle increased requirements as necessary.

For more information, media can call the WBAMC Public Affairs Office at 915-742-6006.
