Hello to all...
I just signed up for this group. I was a Hospital Corpsman from 1981 to 1987. I went to Boot Camp (Company 276) and Corps School (Class 82015) in San Diego. My duty stations were Naval Hospital, Camp Lejeune NC, NSHS Bethesda MD, and Naval Hospital Portsmouth VA. I'm now a family physician in civilian practice in Idaho. My grandfather, who inspired me to be a Corpsman, was HMC O.E. Bonine, who served in the USCG from 1928 to 1956.
If you have a moment, please take a look at my post https://med-dept.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1801 in Reference Topics about one of the instruments in my grandfather's pocket surgical case. Thanks.
