I posted this over in the U.S. Navy forum, but I figured you guys would also know. "Excuse my ignorance, but I had some quetions about Navy Hospital Corpsmen serving with the USMC. Do HMs carry rifles, or do they only have a sidearm? Do HMs attached to Marine units wear Marine uniforms and insignia? I have other questions about the carrier field, but I think those are more for a recruiter. I met a guy in passing who said he used to be a corpsman (radiology IIRC), but we didn't get around to talking about the in's and out's of his work. Anyway, It got me thinking about HMs and the work they do. God bless 'em all. Thank for any info about the job." CS Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
