Well the name DOC is something to behold. Not everyone can be a DOC It takes a man with special courage and conviction to be a NAVY CORPSMAN (DOC). These men go into battle with not weapons but with medical kits. and then when the battle is at it's fiercest than the call come DOC up. and while bullets and bombs going off the CORPSMAN goes out to aid his fallen charges. These MEN are real HERO'S and we should remember there deeds daily. SEMPER FI DOC and THANK YOU. You are not forgotten

I lost my cousin who was my age, in 1967. They were almost all so young and brave. They fought for each other to survive. Some had something within to do more and died. God Bless his relatives, he is watching you.

Doc Ray was our Corpsman
3245 - 48th Avenue South Minneapolis MN 55406-2337 USA
Remembering Doc Ray 40 years after 3/19/69
Doc Ray was our Corpsman on the hill at Liberty Bridge when he was killed. Doc was the greatest human being I've ever known: caring, courageous, smart and fun. I was wounded that night 3/19/69, came to on a litter and heard someone dying next to me, Doc Ray. Our other corpsman was working on him to no avail and I could only hold Doc's hand while he slipped away. I was med-evaced out and only recently learned Doc Ray was awarded the MOH. No one deserves it more. Gunny Keefe was KIA that night too. God Bless & Semper Fi!

'I'm the One Called 'Doc…' I shall not walk in your footsteps, but I will walk by your side. I shall not walk in your image, I've earned my own title of pride. We've answered the call together, on sea and foreign land. When the cry for help was given, I've been there right at hand. Whether I am on the ocean or in the jungle wearing greens, Giving aid to my fellow man, be it Sailors or Marines. So the next time you see a corpsman and you think of calling him 'squid', Think of the job he's doing as those before him did. And if you ever have to go out there and your life is on the block, Look at the one right next to you… I'm the one called 'Doc'. Harry D.
