Richard Glen Schroeder
Within the Battalion there was a small group of men called "Doc".
Trained at first by the Navy, then retrained by the Corps to travel, fight, and care for 1st Recon Marines in need.
In-country the green uniforms all became one, and we considered our Corpsmen as fellow Marines held with great respect by all.
