EL PASO, Texas – Fort Bliss Soldiers and agencies exercised the ability to deliver patients to level one trauma care for the first time in four years, September 4.
Soldiers assigned to 5th Armored Brigade, First Army Division West coordinated a mass casualty exercise that helped North Carolina National Guard medics prepare for an upcoming deployment. At the same time, the exercise tested communication between ground units, air medical evacuation operations, and the emergency department at University Medical Center to ensure critically injured patients receive the highest level care available.
Right now, 5th AR is training and validating 30th Armored Brigade Combat Team, North Carolina National Guard for their upcoming deployment to the middle-east. This mass casualty exercise began as a rehearsal to address one of the most dangerous situations that could arise during any unit’s training; a vehicle roll-over.
Master Sgt. Trey Albertson, medical operations noncommissioned officer in charge assigned to 5th AR said, “The incident was one of the big concerns of both the brigade commander and the Division West commanding general: a late night movement of Soldiers with a vehicle roll-over.”
The North Carolina Army National Guard is stepping in to help people on the Outer Banks affected by Hurricane Dorian.
Members of the NC National Guard are working around the clock to help hundreds of people who were stranded on Ocracoke Island. There were at least eight aircrafts involved in search and rescue efforts and supply delivery to the island hit hard by the storm.
We sent Sky5 over Ocracoke Island to get a glimpse at the damage Hurricane Dorian left behind. The storm brought ferocious winds and storm surge that would spill into homes.
Governor Roy Cooper says about 800 residents on the island rode out the storm.
Guardsmen from North Carolina are stepping in with rescue efforts. They spent all of Friday loading aircraft with food and water. Also on hand were teams to help with search and rescue efforts.
While some parts of North Carolina’s Outer Banks are reopening to residents and visitors, access to Ocracoke Island remains restricted because of “catastrophic” damage from Hurricane Dorian.
Re-entry to Ocracoke was limited Sunday to emergency responders and other authorized personnel, including supply crews.
About 100 National Guard soldiers also remain on Ocracoke, which was inundated by storm surge Friday from Dorian, according to a Sunday news release from Gov. Roy Cooper.
Video from the Hyde County Sheriff’s Office shows massive flooding that hit on Friday as Dorian’s eye hugged the North Carolina Outer Banks. The video shows storm surge flowing past and splashing onto the deck of a deputy’s home.

September 12th — Today in Guard History National Guard
North Point, Maryland – After the British Army captured and burned the government buildings in Washington, DC, their fleet carrying more than 5,000 soldiers arrived near Baltimore with the plan of capturing the city and burning its dockyards and naval stores. The army began moving overland to approach the city from the north while the navy planned to bombard Fort McHenry and enter Baltimore Harbor. Meeting the British force was an army composed almost entirely of Maryland militia units, including the 5th Regiment of Infantry, Maryland Militia (who’s lineage is perpetuated today by the 175th Infantry). There was a short but sharp fight outside of the city’s defensive works, during which the British commander was killed. The next day, after the British Navy failed to capture Fort McHenry a night attack, the troops reboarded their vessels and withdrew back down Chesapeake Bay.
