Milblogger Herschel Smith at Captain’s Journal pays tribute. Read the whole thing. He concludes:
“Navy Corpsmen are worth their weight in gold, and even if the Commander in Chief isn’t smart enough to know how to pronounce their billet, we have the utmost respect for them.”
I always prefered Navy Corpsmen to Dr's when I needed care. They know their shit and don't have the Dr's prissy-assed attitude of "I know best". Beside that, Corpsmen were best at giving shots, better than any A.F. or Army medics I had to deal with. If you needed your appendix out and no Dr's were around they'd be glad to cut your guts out :<) Er, I mean appendix...
