    Army Medics have much more potential to see action, especially if you get yourself assigned to a combat unit. Some of the most hardcore soldiers I've known were actually Medics.
    I agree. Medics in the ground forces, especially those who served in combat always have more stuff to do. Besides, where I come from, we only have a River Flotilla...

    I'm biased obviously, but one thing the army has going for the recruiting process is that you can pick your job based on your ASVAB(Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) before you sign your contract. As long as your scores are alright, you'll get in easy. During the course training at Ft. Sam Houston, you'll pick up a lot of skills, but the only civilian certification you'll earn is your CPR/First Aid and your national certification for EMT-Basic.

    But there are additional trainings(called skill identifiers) that you can sign up for, like operating room specialist or lpn. If you do choose to go this route, do it before you sign. Once you're in they will never pay for it, especially in the reserves.

    ALL USMC units receive Navy Corpsman (& Navy Dental, but who cares?) for medical support. That why Marines yell "Corpsman Up!", because there's a Corpsman right there in the **** with them, from the Grunts all the way up.
    Navy HM's have just as much chance to see combat as Army Medics do.

    whats the word on this?

    I can give contact info to one of the docs in my unit, if you are still interested.

    Also, being in the reserves, you can guarantee what unit you're in. Be it wing or infantry, Motor-t or a line co...

    But..be a man, get signed to a grunt unit. (Reserves allows you to basically pick your base and MOS)

    Agreed. If you're Green Side & you're not with a deployable combat unit, then you might as well be stationed on a boat or in a naval hospital somewhere. If you're gonna wear a pickle suit, do it fuckin' right!


    Here's a Navy Hospital Corpsman...

    there's a HM here, can you tell which one?



    & here's one that earned a Silver Star, standing with his Sister, an Army Sgt...

    On the morning of Feb. 10, 2006, Chiarini who was with Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit was riding shotgun in the third vehicle of a Marine patrol in Anbar when a roadside bomb detonated near the lead vehicle.
    That vehicle sped out of the kill zone, and four of its five occupants the gunner stayed in the turret to provide cover fire ran out to take up defensive positions. At that moment, a much larger explosion ripped into the dismounted Marines. An Iraqi interpreter, called Kenny by the Marines, had his arm nearly severed in the second blast. Then insurgents about 400 meters away pinned the Marines down with small-arms fire.
    But Chiarini knew none of this. After the first explosion, the convoy had become separated, with the corpsman in one of two vehicles in the back half of the convoy. A second, more heavily armored Humvee was about 100 meters in front, and the lead Humvee carrying the injured Marines was 100 meters farther up. The scene ahead was blocked by dense smoke, and he could not hear above the din of small-arms fire and exploding hand grenades. He heard nothing over the radio.
    When his less experienced driver Chiarini was then on his second tour in Iraq balked at driving forward into the melee, Chiarini grabbed his rifle and medical kit and ran forward as insurgents fired at him from rooftops.
    "He just hesitated." I said,"Screw it. I am going forward." he recalled. "I felt like corpsmen that had gone before me in earlier wars were there. I could feel their hands on my shoulders as I worked."
    Dodging enemy fire, Chiarini ran 200 meters to the wounded Marines. One by one, he directed three of them to limp toward the armored Humvee, while he followed them, laying down covering fire with his M16. Then, with one hand, he carried the more seriously wounded interpreter to the rear, turning his body sideways at times to lay down cover fire.
    When they reached the rear of the armored Humvee, Chiarini began treating their injuries
    About five minutes later, a Marine quick-reaction force arrived from a nearby base. Once its corpsmen began treating the wounded, Chiarini grabbed his rifle again, killing several insurgents, including a 12-year-old boy who was spotted with a detonator.
    All of the wounded Marines survived; a few weeks later, Chiarini ran into one of them, a corporal nicknamed Redhead, at a Camp Lejeune, N.C., pool hall. Earning the Silver Star was special, Chiarini said, but he got the most meaningful tribute he ever received for his work in Iraq not at the statehouse, but at 8 Ball Pizza more than a year ago.
    "Doc, I knew everything was going to be OK when I saw you come through the smoke," the Marine told him.




    This **** still chokes me up a little bit & I've been out for years. It takes a special kind of animal to go into combat with full intention to also render life-saving care.


    Oh, & one of these guys was a Corpsman. Fucking Respect!!!

    **** Sirc, when was the last time he was here? He's probably onto wanting to be a fucking cosmonaut or something. Space Monkey!

    Seriously though, sirc, go talk to a recruiter, and like I've said before, if you're getting anything less then guaranteed e-2, you're getting screwed. You might even be able to snaggle e-3, depending on how good your recruiter is.
    If you can't snaggle e-3 out of the Navy, you're doing it wrong.

    When you're standing in front of the memorial, the one with the empty canteen pouch is the Corpsman. Bonus points if you know what happened to his canteen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bradley_%28Navy%29

    ill let you know it fucken rocks. i love being a corpsman im currently stationed in camp lejeune north carolina, awaiting class up for Field medical training battalion. as long as you can do whats needed (though many times uncomfortable for the patient) with a strong confidence and pt like a mofo then do it. sarc is special amphibious recon corpsman i tried out for it in corps school and destroyed the PST but i wasnt motivated enough (if you arnt going to fuckin cut your arm off for it dont even waste their time) so i chose not to waste their time. a regular corpsman can get plenty of action via fleet marine force or IA if you want action youll get it. if you have questions hit me up.
