It's always a great day in the Army when you get to recognize one of your own and promote them to a rank of higher responsibility and trust.

From the moment SGT Brown came to 440th MDBS he carried himself as an NCO. He constantly maintained the knowledge, confidence, and perseverance of a leader that junior Soldiers WANT to follow. He makes every Soldier around him better and there couldn't be a better 92Y to help 440th inactivate.

It's always a great day to recognize Soldiers for their hard work!

The 10 Soldiers seen here, plus two more, put forth a great deal of effort during Operation Allied Welcome. The days were long and the tasks changed depending on the ever evolving circumstances. These Soldiers had to utilize their training and ability to think critically to solve any problem that arose.

We are proud to call ourselves Bloodrunners! 🩸🏃🏽‍♂️🏃‍♀️

It was a great Army day for the Blood Runners this past Wednesday, 8 December 2021. Not only did CPL Matthew Rendon win the 528th Hospital Center NCO of the Month Board but he also conducted his reenlistment ceremony following the board proceedings. Blood Runner 6 was truly honored to conduct his oath of enlistment.

CPL Rendon is a phenomenal junior 68K NCO with great untapped potential. The Army is truly fortunate to be able to keep a dedicated and empathetic leader in its formation. Congratulations on both your wins!!!

Leader development is an investment that promises huge return in the long run when fostered correctly. We continue to support and assist the School of Strong Knights - a Noncommissioned Officer developmental course that targets our junior NCOs in the ranks of CPLs, SGTs, and SSGs within our formation.

Great job Blood Runner 7 for your continuous assistance and support with developing our NCOs. You always know how to foster a learning environment and cultivate a culture of growth amidst all that is going on around us with the pandemic and Operation Allies Welcome. We are blessed to have you as our Top!

11/11/2021

Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was "dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day.'" As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.

In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress -- at the urging of the veterans service organizations -- amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Today, on veteran’s days we are proud to be able to laterally appoint one of our most hard-working and intelligent blood runner, SPC David Ramirez and welcome him into the NCO Corps. He graduated at the top of his BLC Class, earning #3 overall. He was also the 2nd QTR Soldier of the Quarter winner for 528th Hospital Center.

We are looking forward to even greater things from you CPL Ramirez. Congratulations and welcome to the backbone corps!

"It is the Noncommissioned Officer to whom the Soldier first turns to when he/she needs information, counsel, or other help. Squad Leaders, Platoon Sergeants, and First Sergeants create the leadership environment in which today's Army concepts thrive or expire. The quality of the Noncommissioned Officer Corps determines in large measure the quality of the Army." - 4th SMA Leon L. Van Autreve

We never truly say “goodbye” in the Army, we only say “see ya later!”

Staff Sergeant Melinda Loera, Detachment Sergeant of 745th Forward Resuscitative Surgical Team departs today and will be moving forward to her next assignment at Fort Sill, OK.

It is not everyday where you find and meet an NCO that still embodies what it truly means to be the “Backbone of the Army.” SSG Loera truly cares and consistently prioritizes her Soldiers’ welfare without deviating from standard. You truly are an exceptional leader, mother, battle buddy, and Noncommissioned Officer! Desert Knight 7 and Blood Runner 7 is grateful and appreciative to have been able to serve alongside you! Thank you for everything you have done for the Noble Knight Nation and for always being the epitome of Noble Knight NCO!

Black Knight 7, you’ll be missed! — See ya later!

Week 2 - Noble Knights EFMB Train-up!

EFMB test is the utmost challenge to the professional competence and physical endurance of the Soldier medic. It is the most sought after peacetime award in the AMEDD, and while the Combat Medical Badge is the "portrait of courage" in wartime, the Expert Field Medical Badge is undoubtedly the "portrait of excellence" in the Army all of the time.

We also discussed best practices, candidates strengths and weaknesses on particular tasks, minimized the EFMB Rumor-mill and many more.

The EFMB event is approaching fast! Stay tuned!!

BLOOD🩸RUNNERS

Soldiers from across Fort Bliss are training with the 528th Hospital Center Noble Knights - all trying to earn one of the Army’s most prestigious distinctions.

All the candidates here are working towards the Expert Field Medical Badge (EFMB). It’s the badge of excellence for all the medical Soldiers in the Army that really sets you apart from your peers if you were to earn it.

SSG Bueno, 440th Blood Support Detachment Sergeant, alongside multiple EFMB badge holders across the post congregated multiple highly motivated candidates. The team provided an initial brief on a two month training plan to support and significantly increase their chance at attaining one of the Army’s most coveted badges.

Reviresco… We are Noble Knights!

The Blood Runners supported the “Devil” Brigade at Fort Riley, Kansas by conducting pre-screen blood draws in order to obtain a master tracker of potential donors in support of their upcoming mission.

The 440th MDBS (falls under the 1st Medical Brigade)and the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team (under 1st Infantry Division)We are very honored to be able to continue to support the longstanding legacy and relationship between the 1MB and 1ID that dates back all the way to WWI.

“As of 2005, the 1st Medical Brigade was the oldest color-bearing medical unit in the United States Army. The 1st Medical Brigade was first organized in France in 1917 as the 1st Sanitary Train from units that had been deployed along the Mexican border. It was assigned to the 1st Division (which would later become the 1st Infantry Division), the first American Unit committed to offensive operations in World War I. The linkage between 1MB and 1ID is signified within the distinctive unit insignia of 1MB - maroon shield bearing within a wreath of silver oak leaves the helmet of an esquire charged with the shoulder sleeve insignia of the First Division, a shield with the figure "1."
