You were a great friend Bernie, gone way too soon.

I cherish the memories of being with you in Portland, Maine. You were always so bright and cheerful, even when you gave me those allergy shots. I have never served with a more professional military man and genuinely kind and giving person.

May you rest in peace my friend. Gone, but never forgotten.

Remembering our Fallen Heros

I have been wearing a braclet with his name on it since 1987. I received it from the wall in Washinton DC. I was a new sailor in the Navy. I have not taken it off since the day I put it on. I would like to return it to any of his closest family members. I have worn it with great pride but am happy to remove it since I have learned his remains were returned to US soil in 1998.

"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 thing 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 you life is on the block,
Look at the one right next to you…
I'm the one called "Doc".
