Great group Kurt, there was a great book I read years ago that gives you some insite on what these docs went thru, if you can get your hands on it, it's a great read:

Surgeon on Iwo: Up Front With the 27th Marines

 

Thanks for sharing Kurt

Thanks! I need to get that book,

Interesting side note to that book, one of the pharmacist mates mentioned several times in the book was from central Minnesota. About 7 years ago did an internet search and found an address close to the town listed in the book. Did a drive on a summer Friday afternoon went to the address and it was an assisted living residence. Veteran was dead, widow was in the early phases of dementia and could not answer a question that I asked but on the wall was a shadow box with his pharmacist mate patch, photos and other items from his service.
