    This should be in a PM but it worth letting others in the forum know how much corpsman are admired and appreciated.
    I had a PA work on me in the hospital who knew more than the first year intern. As it turns out he was a former Naval corpsman. When they graduate from corpsman program, they have the equivalent of three years of civilian medical school training. It shows the way they conduct themselves.
    As an aside, it takes real guts to crawl under enemy fire to aid a wounded Marine. I was treated by a Naval corpsman when wounded in Morocco. The Marine squads that rescued us from the nasties were accompanied by a corpsman and one never to be forgotten gunny.
    Enjoy the day,

    Those grizzly docs are still around. Trust me, I work with one and there isn't a war story I havent heard from him. The reason I'm a HM3, E-4 so young is because I went into the Delayed Entry Program at 17 yo and graduated basic training at NRTC Great Lakes as a E-3. I stayed there for a few more months after graduation for medcal school and graduated that and became a HN(still E-3) had my first duty station and took the E-4 exam and passed. All I had to do then was just wait till I had my time in service and then I got frocked (aka promoted to Petty Officer).
    Trust me no disrespect was intended! As an old Marine, I know there aint nobody better than a Corpsman, especially one assigned to FMF!

(found this out through my mother who happens to be one of the Nursing Supervisors.)
    When i lived there i had to go for back therapy at Holy Name Hospital.I found them to be super and the staff was great.

    The only good hospital down here is Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.The rest aren't that good and the staff isn't so great.My moms been sick so i know.If you need rehab here your in big trouble.The staff at any rehab place here is the worlds worst.
