My Dad was a Marine and my mother forbade me to join the Marines. So I became a Corpsman I became something between a Bubblehead, Squid, Scrunt and Scrog. There are literally thousands of people who know who I am, where I’ve been and what I’ve done but only know me as “Doc”. I’m good with that.
OBTW, that pic had to come from the Lady Lex as I don’t think A6’s flew off the TR. I watched her go down the Thames river to the shipyard for the final time. Also saw my first boat and the USS America (my first “ship”) make the same journey. I will admit I cried for the last two.
