It is difficult for me to watch this video in honor of the 49 Navy Hospital Corpsmen who have fallen in service to their Marine brothers since 9/11. As a Vietnam veteran, FMF Corpsman, it brings back to mind my Corpsman brothers who fell in that war.
Take the time to watch this video in honor of the 49 Corpsmen who have made the supreme sacrifice while caring for their injured Marines and others in the War in Terror. And listen to the words of Col. Oliver North at the very end.
“This is what we do!”
Rest in peace, brave Corpsmen. Your sacrifices were not made in vain.
