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."

The Corporal (CPL).
The CPL was established in 1775 with the birth of the Army and the NCO corps. Along with the rank of sergeant, the corporal is the only rank that has never disappeared from the NCO corps. CPLs are the base of the NCO ranks, serving as leader of the smallest Army units, principally; team leaders. Like sergeant, corporals are responsible for the individual training, personal appearance and cleanliness of their Soldiers. As the command sergeant major is known as the epitome of success in the NCO corps, the corporal is the beginning of the NCO corps. As the NCO corps is known as the backbone of the Army, the corporal is the backbone of the NCO corps.

"Sergeants must inspire Soldiers to be more than they ever thought they could be."
- CSM James A. (Art) Johnson

Congratulations to the following Soldiers for this historical milestone and welcome to the NCO Corps. We know you all will make us proud in leading our junior Blood Runners!

1. CPL Vanessa L. Hooper
2. CPL Aldin Hrncic
3. CPL Damion A. Melville
4. CPL Tyler A. Shadrick

"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 of July WOD

As we conclude our People First Action Week (PFAW) to include an early celebration of independence day this weekend, the Blood Runners along with the rest of Task Force (TF) 528, conducted a WOD paying homage to the American history which included a 3-4 mile detachment run.

4th of July WOD:

11 Min AMRAP
7 Air Squats
3 Reverse Crunches
17 Hip Bridges
7 Push Ups
6 Split Lunges

The Fourth of July-also known as Independence Day or July 4th-has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson.

From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.

The Fourth of July 2021 is on Sunday, July 4, 2021; the federal holiday will be observed on Monday, July 5, 2021.

Army Water Survival Training (AWST) builds Soldier confidence and survivability in and around water. AWST teaches the skill, endurance, strength, and mental toughness required for waterborne field training and combat environments.

Two levels of classification in the AWST program inform the commander the water survivability levels of his or her Soldiers: basic survival swimmer (known as BSS) and combat survival swimmer (known as CSS). All Soldiers complete combat survival swimmer annually.

As part of the Quarterly NCOPD Program - the Noble Knight Backbones conducted their 3rd QTR NCOPT to enhance the camaraderie, while building a strong foundation of trust and increasing the Esprit de Corps within the NK NCO Corps. The NCOs are truly the Backbone of the Army. They are leading from the front by setting the conditions in order to train the rest of the Noble Knight Nation.

Thank you CSM Palmos for always leading the NK Backbones and pushing us to continuously reach greater heights💪🏽

A study from 2018 reported that more than 12% of Soldiers had some form of a sleep disorder. Getting a full 8 hours of sleep is important to be the best Soldier as one can be.

Good afternoon Team,

I just want to share my excitement for this new upcoming Sergeant/NCO! Soon to be SGT Quan Singleton is the true embodiment of what Soldiers strive to be and what NCOs should be. This Soldier is nothing but exemplary day-in/day-out. As a SPC, he executes his tasks in accordance to standards, assists his battle buddies with theirs, and continuously mentor/guide his peers without any hesitation. I am glad the NCO Corps will have him as a new addition and I’m certain that he will exceed ANY and ALL expectations set forth by his leaders as he has always done as a junior enlisted Soldier! Whether it’s doing kilo-related tasks, Soldier-tasks, or “Operator” tasks - this NCO will definitely give it his full 200%

Thanks for being a phenomenal Soldier and I am definitely honored to have the opportunity to Lead you! Remember as an NCO - Always Lead by Example and NEVER expect your subordinates to do things YOU won’t do yourself.

CONGRATULATIONS🎉🎉🎉

#68K Medical Laboratory Specialist

As a Medical Laboratory Specialist, you'll have the important responsibility of caring for and aiding in the diagnosis and treatment of the Soldiers. You’ll collect samples from patients and perform chemical and biological tests to help diagnose. You’ll have to work through a lot of unknowns and be willing and able to work through projects autonomously and confidently. You’ll sample blood types, perform elementary blood banking, conduct laboratory procedures, maintain laboratory equipment, and pack, unpack, inspect, store, and distribute blood and blood products.

***INVESTIGATION RESULTS RELEASED***

As a result of the Army 15-6 investigation into the disappearance and death of Specialist Vanessa Guillén, leaders from squad to general officer level were relieved and/or formally reprimanded for failure to act on her credible sexual harassment complaints. No evidence indicates that this sexual harassment was in any way related to her death.

Read the full 15-6 Executive Summary and report at link below.

Friday afternoon, all available Soldiers at Fort Hood were briefed by their commanders about the investigation’s key findings and reminded to continue putting ‘people first’ and building trust.

Today, the 528th Hospital Center hosted an NCO Induction that inducted three of our Blood Runner NCOs into the Noncomissioned Officer Corps. The NCO Induction is a time honored corps tradition that commemorates the rite of passage as a celebration of the newly promoted sergeants joining the ranks of the Noncommissioned Officer Corps, to emphasize and build on the pride we all share as members of such an elite corps.

Congratulations to our newly Inducted NCOs:
1. SGT David Gray
2. SGT Britnay Russell
3. CPL Michael Sawyer

In the afternoon, the NCO and Soldier of the Quarter Board (2nd QTR) convened. The competitors emphasized great military bearing, presence, and knowledge all throughout. After sponsoring our NCOs in the morning at the induction, SSG Tim Gonzalez also competed at the Quarter Board. It wasn’t an easy feat, however, our Platoon Sergeant pulled through and earned the title of 528th NCO of the Quarter for 2nd QTR.

SSG Gonzalez continue to lead by example. We thank you for your phenomenal leadership and endless selfless-service!
