It’s Here!! The Corpsman.com Newsletter for Q1 2009!!!!

Scuttlebutt Newsletter brought to you by DeeDee

Scuttlebutt Newsletter brought to you by DeeDee

Apologies around.  This tome of information has been done for 2 days.

I got sidetracked yesterday taking care of a family friend.  Everything worked out, but it blew up my day.

Today Admiral and I are working at the “FUN-FAIRE” at our kids school.  If you have never experienced a event like this at a Catholic School, grades K-8… Whoooooaaa-Nelly..

But I want to get this out for Dee, who put a lot of effort and time into this package.  Once again she amazed me with her product for you all.

I also want to thank Doc-Pardue, who is featured extensively in this quarters paper, thanks Doc!

The Newsletter is in Adobe .pdf form.  Please install the free “Adobe Reader” to look at this document.

Without further ado.. Enjoy!

    This issue was the first I've seen and I consider myself fortunate. The more I read here on Corpsman.com the more I like it. Reading this issue was like the mothership calling me 🙂 I agreed with or felt the same as much of what I read. Good people, good website, I hope this site goes on for all to experience, enjoy and by chance learn from. Kudos to all involved.

    Bill Cosby was definitly a Navy Corpsman. One of my instructors went to corps school with him. I did one of my live rotations at Balboa Naval Hospital on the ward Bill had been assigned to. It was the cardiac ward. I often wondered if he told all those jokes to those guys. I served as a corpsman 1966-1970. Stationed at Naval Hospital, Pensacola and USS Yellowstone AD-27 after completing pharmacy tech school. Proud to have ben a DOC. Ross Nutt
