NAV HOSP PHILA 1965Posted on 11/9/14 - by email@example.comBill worked on the same ward as I did at the Naval Hospital in Philadelphia. I think volunteered for the Marines the same time I did in 1965. He wasn't with my FMF Class in Camp LeJeune. I think he went later. Bill was a great Corpsman on the ward. Hard worker, always willing to help with patient care duties. We had a Lieutenant Commander ward head nurse; I don't remember her name - who always yelled "ROHAN!!!" when she needed him or wanted something clarified. She was a terrible nurse but I can't remember her name. One of the great nurses was LT Patricia Ludwig whom I saw again after serving in Vietnam. Lost track of her after that. Bill just did what he had to do and never got upset with her. He was just a peaceful guy and loved being in the Navy. After I left for FMF School I heard he volunteered for the Marines. Never heard anymore about him until I saw his name on The Wall along with Gale "Stormy" Felver, also KIA Vietnam. Rest in Peace, Bill. I will never forget you. 'Doc" Lou BeckMORE

Remembering An American HeroPosted on 9/16/13 - by Curt CarterDear HM3 William James Rohan, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
