I am Stephen M. Miland.  I was a Corpsman from 68-72.  I went to Vietnam and was stationed at NSA Danang Station Hospital 69-70'.  Work in Receiving one and two.  I went to Nursing school in 1977 and spent 32 years as an RN and 25 years in ICU.  I just retired a couple months ago and now I am bored as hell.DocSteve.jpg.  (I'm on the left)

To: Douglas James Riley,  I agree Kerry would have been as bad or worse being that he was in the Navy.

Attended Corps School at Great Lakes late 85-early 86 after spending two weeks at the hospital for Chicken Pox right out of boot camp- sad to see it's no longer around. Then was sent to the original Balboa, San Diego April 86 (also no longer there) where I worked in supply room from 6 months. Attended the Orthopedic Tech program and worked with some of the smartest MD's met. Transferred to Naval Hospital JAX 1989 and worked in the ER and surgery ward until June 1990. BEST TIMES OF MY LIFE! So glad to have found this site.

Ricard Fegley - it could have been worse, they could've asked Kerry to present it!

It was good to see another medal of honor given to a true American Hero, yesterday.  BUT, watching that guy from 1600 Pennsylavnia Ave doing it was so revolting to me.  That man is not worthy to give out flea collars to a dog...

Honor is what is shown by "our" military and it is dishonored with the leadership

of America's current president, senate, congress as well as the supreme court.

Leadership is being shown by one person in a leadership role.  The lone star state looks to be doing ok with its Leadership.

Do any of my fellow Corpsman realize we had a name change a year ago.  We are now "corpseman" according to that guy at 1600 pennsylvania ave.  Is anyone else pissed off at such intentional disrespect of our fellow corpsman that died saving others.

David King, I too have my unit one from its issue to me in 1973.  I recently purchased another one from a surplus store near me.  But that one was empty, so I had to stock it myself.

I attended HCS SDiego 8/62-11/62. I was Assistant PO of our company.

I was on Active Duty from 4/61-4/65 , spent 2 years in Reserves as HM3. I spent most of my active time at NavHosp SDiego. in various areas. I had broken service for 16 years and went in the Reserves in 1983 in Phoenix, AZ as an HN. This was even though I had worked in the civilian world in emergency medicine (EMT) I basically had to start over! I spent most of my Reserve time attached to the Fleet Marine Force or FSSG. Of my 24y5m8d I spent over 16y with the green side of the house in various units. I retired in 2002 and was Senior Advisor for the MedSurg unit I was assigned to as well as the Career Counselor.

I do miss the camaraderie but not the politics!

Greetings to all my fellow "Docs"  

It feels right and good to be with such a group.

Comment by Armando Gonzalez on January 8, 2014 at 9:55am

Greetings Docs!  I was a "Doc" from 1973 to 1977, strangely, my guaranteed "A" school at Balboa hospital corps school was not to start until a several months later, after bootcamp in San Diego.  So,,, the Navy sent me to Southeast Asia, Phillippines first (Subic Bay) to catch my new assignment the USS Niagra Falls AFS3.  That was an adventure!  Although, not a corpsman yet, I was assigned to Sick Bay as a "Stiker", OJT!!  Let me tell you, for a 17 yr old who had never been exposed to the world, I got all I needed and more.  Yep, some blood and guts episodes, I remember throwing up a few times the first time I smelled fresh human blood.  Oh, the first leg amputee I saw was on the USS Kityhawk, I green LT JG was on the flight deck, wrong place at the wrong time,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, damn I just got a visual from that,,,and it happened ovr 40 yrs ago!  You never forget that stuff.   After the WestPack cruise, and Corpsman School I was stationed at NMFRL at Camp Lejuene, N.C., that was interesting.  Yep, I have to say my 4 yrs as a Navy Corpman was quite interesting.  Good to be onboard, I feel like I am a home......................
