Yeah, that's from HCS in San Diego. Don't know that it still exists. Another thing I've wondered about...how come the Navy will only recognize FMF service for HMs who served AFTER 1984, but not before? What about the thousands of us HM Devil Docs who served with the Marines before '84? I'm not a glory hound, but on the other hand for the Navy to select just a few recent Grunt Docs and recognize them and ignore the rest of us seems patently unfair, at least. Either we all served FMF and should be recognized for it or none at all. Our Field Med School was as tough or tougher than the post 1984 era will ever know, and we passed the USMC PFT as a requirement, too.
There. I feel better.
Who else is feeling left out? Any old Docs out there?

Wow that photo is older than me. I went to Corps School in 1996. We never had a mobile canteen at Corps School either. Must be San Diego's I went to Corps School in Great Lakes.

The green side is the only side. If you ain't green you ain't Marine.

Hey Doc Alexander--Thanks for starting this group!
I was on the 'green side' also, with 3rd Mar Div and 1st Mar Div.
Oorah!
Little did I know how good we had it then...

I am a former HM3 that created this group because we are unique in that we serve both NAVY and MARINES. I personally preferred the Marine Corps but everyone has their preference. Look forward to more joining soon.
