The Vietnam Medic Prayer
     
Oh Lord, I ask for the divine strength
to meet the demands of my profession. Help me to be the finest medic, both technically and tactically. Give me the courage to conserve our fighting forces by providing medical care to all who are in need. If I am called to a mission of peace, give me the strength to lead by caring for those who need my assistance. Finally, Lord, help me to take care of my own spiritual, physical and emotional needs. Teach me to trust in your presence and never-failing love.

AMEN

IN TRIBUTE TO ALL MY FELLOW "DOCs", THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN AND THOSE WITH US STILL...

Jerry Ellis,  Camp Holloway Dispensary 68-69

I'm The One Called 'Doc'     
I shall not walk in your footsteps, but I will walk by your side.

I shall not walk in your image, I've earned my own title of pride.

We've answered the call together, on sea and foreign land.

When the cry for help was given, I've been there right at hand.

Whether I am on the ocean or in the jungle wearing greens,

Giving aid to my fellow man, be it Sailors or Marines.

So the next time you see a corpsman and you think of calling him "squid",

Think of the job he's doing as those before him did.

And if you ever have to go out there and your life is on the block,

Look at the one right next to you...

I'm the one called "Doc".

AMEN
