FORT BENNING, Ga. – Approximately 40 Soldiers from the 14th Combat Support Hospital returned yesterday from a nine-month deployment to Kosovo. The 14th CSH provided health service support in the form of curative care, preventive care, essential care, and evacuation to NATO forces operating within the area of operations. Families and friends of the Soldiers welcomed them home at a small ceremony at Freedom Hall after their arrival. p.m.
Although Multinational Battle Group – East (MNBG-E) consists mainly of American Soldiers, there are several other NATO countries that contribute troops to the Kosovo Force (KFOR) mission. Every class that Task Force Medical (TF MED) teaches to the battle group is offered to our foreign allies, as well. This provides a wonderful opportunity for the Viper Medics to work with, train, and teach Soldiers from a variety of foreign countries. During TF MED’s 40 hour Combat Life Saver (CLS) Course this week, First Lieutenant Jagoda Kruger, a Polish Officer, trained and passed the CLS, alongside 10 other Soldiers from MNBG-E.
