    Sgt. Paullus earns EFMB

    Sgt. Kory Paullus, medic at Fort Campbell, KY, 2005 graduate of Heppner, OR high school, married and father of 6 1/2 month old earned. He and 7 other medics of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team "Rakkasans," 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) are the latest graduates and earned their Expert Field Medical Badge.
    Today, the 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. Kory has done tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    His family, friends, and small town of Heppner are so very proud of him. Esp. those who knew him while growing up!!! Congratulations son!!!
    Pictures are Sgt. Kory D. Paullus, Sgt. Stephen M. Palmer, 1st Lt. Christopher Harrell, Cpl. Zachary A. Hall, Pfc. Christopher Faulkner, Pfc. Jeremy J. Head, Pfc.Steven M. Stonecypher, and Pfc. Derek A Selmser shown here with 3BCT Commander, Col. J.B. Vowell.
    God bless you and every soldier, past and present.
