A Visit To The Barracks

Now, in '05, I am near our barracks. Much is gone, what remains haunts me.
No longer a corpsmans' quarters; the building stands as a headquarters with the brass inside and majestic by the Naval Gate. The windows are sealed, no longer blaring "The Age of Destruction" from 1500 to lights out.
It gives no hint of glory days when you were there; then it really housed the greats of the Navy, you and Lew and all those others in the age of your destruction.

Nursing Report

At 1445 each day you were ready to get in your El Camino and head to Kitsap Lake and the fish.
First came the ward nursing report, however, and then out of the starched whites.

Now at Kitsap Lake there is Schon Hall, named for you, for your bravery. Do the fish know of their safety?

"I'm the One Called 'Doc'..."

Rest in Peace "Doc"

John Bruneel, HMCM USN (Ret)



"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".
