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".

my mother's lost love

Danny and my mother were high school sweethearts. In fact she gave birth to his only child. I am looking for any family members of his, but more importantly for my half sister, my mother had to give up for adoption in June 1968. If anyone out there has information please contact me.

Hi Doc, it's me

Hi Doc

It’s me Red.

I will never forget you Danny. We were best buddies and we shared the same mud, fox holes and dreams and couldn’t wait to get back to “The World.”

I remember coming back to the outfit after being wounded on Hill 190 on April 6th and finding out that you had been transferred to another platoon. I got on the horn and you told me “See you in the morning.”

Well, we both know that didn’t happen. I felt so guilty that day about what had happened. There are a lot of “What Ifs” in life and that is one that I wish I could change. But it was not to be.

To this day I keep your photo on my desk. The one I took of you on while resting on the trail up in the DMZ.

And Danny, you will never be forgotten. At the reunions I have put together other Marines and Corpsmen remember you, “Doc Holiday.”

So Danny I hope you have forgiven me…I still miss you brother.

Semper Fi

To my former brother in law

Danny I never got to meet you, but your brother Ronnie and I were married for many yrs and your name came up often. Jack looks almost identical to you, bout close as a twin.
A good friend told me about this site, and he is getting a "rubbing" of your name so I can give it to Ronnie.
Thank you for giving your life to save our freedom...
I love you bro
Diane
