I am very fond of this memorial. I served as a medic with C Co. 2/28th, 1st Infantry in 1966-67. I dedicate this to my fellow medics Mike Stout and Jim Callahan whom I lost a few yrs ago.

Although the casualty rate was high, we felt appreciated and knew that the guys would do everything they could to help us and keep us alive while we were helping others.

I remember reading the story in Jan Scrugg's book, "To Heal A Nation," of the Marines who took over a D.C. Bar as their base of operations during the time when the Wall was being dedicated. At one point, one man toasted the Navy Hospital Corpsmen who served with them in the field as their medics, and to a man the stood, many with tears in their eyes and started chanting "Corpsmen! Corpsmen! Corpsmen!"

It took me a lot of years to finally figure out just why we were there. But I knew all along why you guys were. You medics and corpsmen were were there for us.

Thanks, Doc!
