Remembrance

Richard Roesler was a Navy Hospital Corpsman attached to the 7th Marines. He was killed during the TET Offensive in the Quang Nam Province, South Vietnam. He had been in the service for three years and was looking forward to becoming a pharmacist. His death took a tremendous toll on our family and the sailor who accompanied his body back home.

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