Greg, if we thought you crapped on the group, silence would have NOT been our response.  :)

I stayed in the medical field.  I got my first EMT license in FL in 1978, then my WI EMT license in 1980, then my WI Paramedic license in 1990 while in the USNR.  I worked over 30 years in WI EMS.  Working as a Paramedic was as close to working as a Corpsman that you could get without being a PA/NP/MD.  Had to retire because my back finally said "DONE !!".  2 fusions and 3 surgeries so far, with at least two more to come.

After d/c from navy in 77, I went to school and have been RN since 1981. Still taking care of America's Heroes at VA. Getting ready for retirement.

My daughter is following in my footsteps. She is Corpsman @ Bethesda  taking care of wounded warriors. She's getting ready to report to Charleston next month.

Which wards or departments?

The Recruit Dispensary was built in the early 70s.  It was there in Jan, 75 when I went to boot camp there and I worked there in Jul, 75 when I reported back after HM-A school.  It was already well used by then.  It was the second thing we saw when we reported to boot camp that night, after seeing the "Doorknob to Hell" across the street from the Dispensary.  It was at the very end of the boulevard.

Sorry, I don't.

The first time there, after the ward, I had the occasion to sleep in the building the ER was in, when driving an ambulance.  Don't remember many folks. Most times it was out back in the Transportation shack. The second time there (76-79) I worked in the AMCC, EKG, med records (all in the building the ER was in). also did a stint at the Recruit Dispensary. How about HM3 Larry Brown, HM3 Frank Farris? They were with me at the recruit side.  Larry Brown was an HMCS in 1995 when I retired, worked at Division Surgeon's Office, 2nd MARDIV at Camp Lejeune.  He was at my retirement ceremony.
