Sense of duty drives soldier’s volunteer efforts with local fire department

Patrick Malone, a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System section chief with 1st Battalion, 94th Field Artillery Regiment, 17th Fires Brigade, and a volunteer emergency medical technician for the Bald Hills Fire Department in Yelm, Wash., suits up before a training exercise to remove role-playing injured occupants from a wrecked vehicle.

The female soldiers contributed to the success of their crews, and are the first ever to qualify with the HIMARS since combat arms positions opened up to female Soldiers less than nine months ago.
Their success marks a historic moment for the Army and the field artillery branch, proving what female Soldiers are capable of on the battlefield. What they accomplished with their crews demonstrates what can be achieved through camaraderie and fellowship regardless of gender, principles that 1-94 FA and 17th Fires Bde. value.
