I tend to think of you guys as 'jarheads'...and as an old jarhead, I'm sure you remember that us 'docs' were your best friends.
My buddy and I both volunteered for FMF out of DT School. He was selected and spent 13 months in 'Nam'...me, they sent to work at a small medical/dental dispensory for the staffs of CINCPAC and CINCPACFLT. More admirals and captains than you could shake a stick at. Oh, did I mention this was in Hawaii? Spent two years there before going aboard the USS Oriskany. Be sure to check out my Oriskany site too.
