Yes, You are the man!! I was a Marine with the FMF 1976 , E CO 2/9 # MAR DIV. Navy DOCS THE BEST!! Well, That was before I joined the Navy 6 tears later and Graduated Hospital Corps School November 13 , 1981!! I can speak from both sides saying that grunts and grunt docs can never get enough attaboys!!!
Well I can understand the discontent about not getting the FMF Ribbon when it came out. I was one of the luck ones then. Got both the Ribbon and the Warfare Device. Had to bust my rump both times to earn it. Stationed with K 3/1, B 1/1, 53 ABC Camp Horno, Camp Pendelton... Returned to create a BAS (plank owner) for the School of Infantry (SOI West) and worked out of the 52 ABC...Semper Fi to all my fellow Doc's.....
Fred, use your DD214. It has the 8404 designation on it. I had no trouble joining the MCL. I was welcomed with open arms. I am the only FMF corpsman in our detachment. I was with 1/4 3rd MarDiv home port was Okinawa from 11/72 to 11/73. Summer was jungle training in Phillipines aboard USS Peoria and Tripoli with 8 weeks off Cambodia.
