    Corpsmen are amazing people.

    Walk through the passageway at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and view the Medal of Honor recipients. Many are corpsmen.

    Marines love these guys, as do I. They are self sacrificing, amazing people. I believe God has a special place in heaven for them.

    Godspeed Petty Officer Lee.
