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 I SALUTE YOU FOR ALL YOU DID AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO YOUR MARINES AND COUNTRY

Emil and I first met while we were both stationed at the Naval Air Station at Great Lakes, IL. We were both corpsman and were housed in the same barracks. We both knew that we would be going to Viet Nam, but Emil got his orders several month's before I did. On his last night at Great Lakes there was a snow storm and the temperature was very cold. He was pretty nervous and couldn't sleep, so we decided to walk down to North Chicago and have a bowl of soup at the Town Talk Cafe. We sat there and talked for a long time, we trudged back through the snow and talked awhile longer at the barracks and finally got to bed very late in the morning. Emil had told me that he knew he would not come back from Viet Nam alive. I told him he was nuts and that he certainly would make it back. He was emphatic and said he didn't know what it was, but he just knew he wouldn't. He left the next morning and I never saw Emil again. He was sent to Khe Sahn. A couple of month's later we got the word that he had been killed there. His funeral was near his home on the north side of Chicago and his friends, including myself were pall bearers at his funeral. Seemed ironic that he knew he wasn't coming back alive, and he was right. Have talked to several others who knew those that had said the same thing and were right. Emil was a close friend. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for anyone. He was a very good friend and person and his loss has been a loss for everyone. I miss his friendship. Jim Fisher
