They look real good in that dynamic scene. Makes me want to fire a burst at the group as they look so real.

Looks like we're soon going to hear, "Corpsman up!"

On the bench: 1/500 Revell S.S. Hope, being built as the hospital ship U.S.S. Repose; Academy 1/72 F-86F Sabre, and a diorama to illustrate the crash of a Beech T-34B Mentor which I survived in 1962 (I'm using Minicraft's 1/48 model of the Mentor).

Goldhammer has it right. "Corpsman up!" is the last thing a Navy hospital corpsman wants to hear. It was those words, after one very loud gunshot, that I heard at the beginning of the battle for Hill 50 in Quang Ngai Province, South Vietnam, in March, 1966.  A combined unit of People's Army of North Viet Nam and Main Force Viet Cong soldiers ambushed my company. One of the first shots severely wounded my platoon leader, and I was shot soon after as I was attempting first aid on a wounded Marine. 

After the battle, in which 10 Marines in my company were killed, I was evacuated to the hospital ship U.S.S. Repose for emergency surgery. I'm currently building a model of Repose.

I read your story Bob - I just shake my head.  Thanks for your service - and what does a corpsman yell when he's hit???  Merry Christmas brother, I'm glad you're still with us.

Thanks,

John
