Remembering Doc Bourne

Hi Doc:



I think of you all the time. We were both from Providence and became very close. What are the odds that two RI boys would meet in a place 10,000 miles away?

It was hard for me to see you die. I held you in my arms but there was nothing that I could do but comfort you in your last moments.

Rest well my brother. You are not forgotten.

Annual Visit With Your Mom

It's Memorial Day again, and time for my annual visit with your mom, George. God knows we all miss you terribly but none more than your mom. We spend a few hours each year remembering the good times, swapping stories, and laughing more often than not! It keeps your life and legacy alive for us both. I look forward to this trip each year as I have for the past 10 or 15 years that I've been able to make the trip.

I'm the One Called Doc

I'm the One Called Doc
Rest in Peace "Doc"



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