U.S. Army Capt. Andrea Oliveira and partner nation Soldiers

U.S. Army Capt. Andrea Oliviera, assigned to 2nd Cavalry Regiment, takes notes during the standardization part of this year's U.S. Army Europe Expert Field Medical Badge (EFMB) competition, at the Joint Multinational Training Command's Grafenwoehr Training Area, Germany, Aug. 25, 2014. 300 candidates from U.S. forces in Europe including 40 multinational participants are competing in the five-day challenge. The test is a rigorous evaluation of mental and physical skills and earning the badge requires a high degree of ability and focus. Passing rates range from 5-25 percent, making the EFMB a distinctive mark in a Soldier's records. The EFMB also provides multinational and U.S. service members the opportunity to train together and to gain a greater understanding of their abilities while building more competent and confident Soldiers. As an interoperable team, we deter and prevent future aggression and instability. (U.S. Army photo by Visual Information Specialist Gertrud Zach/released)
