Poor Doc… We don’t deserve Corpsmen. These brave sailors have taken on possibly the most difficult job in all of the United States Armed Forces… Keeping Marines safe. Not just from enemy fire, but themselves as well. Marines are a special
needs breed of animal that requires constant adult supervision to keep it from destroying itself. This responsibility alone should warrant some kind of special hazard pay or bonus, but alas, Doc just takes care of us because he has to, and he asks for nothing in return.
It takes a certain kind of person to voluntarily take care of Marines. Imagine, if you will, day in and day out, spent looking at the genitals of concerned Marines after a weekend of unprotected adventures out in town. This lump here, this bump there. It’s an existence caught somewhere between purgatory and hell.
Next time you see your Doc, give him a pat on the back and an ice cold alcoholic beverage.
He needs it.
