Happy 120th Birthday Hospital Corps, most fulfilling amazing job. The closest thing to being a multi-class Fighter/Cleric job in the world.
The picture is from 2010, Helmand Province, Afghanistan. I was there with 3rd Battalion 1st Marines, Kilo Company.
The Hospital Corpsman rating has provided health care to Sailors, Marines and civilians worldwide for over a century. With exemplary valor and dedication, the Navy’s most decorated rate has served in every military conflict since the rating’s inception July 17, 1898.
