Better yet, put that uniform back on! Join the veteran crew on a Navy historical ship!  The billet we filled as Corpsmen is one that has an important role to fulfill as so many of the vets that serve on the museum ships are "older than many of us"!

That would be a little tough for you Ron! They don't have a ship in AZ ....yet!

Volunteer!  I spent 30 years as Healthcare Administrator. All the local hospitals need volunteers, you set the hours, do as you want, and not responsible for others, LOL

To Stephen Miland; Welcome to RETIREMENT. UGH! Your not alone in this category.It takes time to adjust, find the local library and sing up for something that trips your trigger.

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.
