Robert Dillon firstname.lastname@example.org Navy Corpsman aboard USS Repose 295 Victoria Drive Gilroy,CA 95020 USA One Marine's story I was a 21-year-old ward corpsman aboard the Hospital Ship Repose (AH-16) when gunny Perkins was admitted. He caught a .51 caliber machine gun round in the left chest, and it shattered nearly every one of his vital organs in both his chest and abdomen. He endured a stormy downhill course for nearly two months. He received nearly 100 units of blood donated from crew members of Repose, including me. The doctors, nurses, and corpsmen fought like tigers to save his life, but it was not to be. However, I can say that his death brought about some good. Gunny Perkins taught at least one young man how to die, with equanimity and courage. For that I shall always revere his memory. Robert T. Dillon, former HM2, USN, USS Repose (AH-16) 1968. "Marines die-that's what we're for. However, the Marine Corps will never die, and therefore each of us will live forever." From the movie "Full Metal Jacket" Sunday, November 21, 1999
