The Fort Detrick Volunteer Awards Ceremony was held April 20 at the Community Activities Center, honoring the members of the Fort Detrick community who volunteered approximately 10,000 hours of their time, representing a labor savings for our community of over $208,000.
Staff members of the Fort Detrick Barquist Army Health Clinic donate items to a local shelter, Heartly House, in recognition of the Sexual Harassment Assault Response and Prevention Month during the month of April. Heartly House serves Frederick County residents who have been impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. For more information about Heartly House, call (301) 662-8800.
Did you know that the majority of casualties that die on the battlefield die from uncontrolled bleeding? Analysis of data from conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan indicates that approximately 22 percent of Service Members who died following severe bleeding after injury could have potentially been saved had their hemorrhaging been controlled early on.
"In their uniqueness, stories of rescue remind us all of the wide range of choices that we are capable of making as individuals. Our actions in the face of injustice of hatred always matter."
