Doc Joe Claroni
Navy Corpsman with Lima Co. 3/3 from Nov. 68 to Oct. 69. We were based out of Con Thien and Quang Tri. We also had ops in the An Hoa Mts. and many other areas and firebases. Would like to hear from other Docs and Marines. Welcome home to all and a prayer goes out to our fallen brothers and their families.

This is one awesome web site. Not only are the Marines great warriors but they have some outstanding woman that stand along side them. Keep up the wonderful job you are doing with this site. I was extremely moved by your section regarding Navy Corpsman. You honor so many of my corpsmen friends who never made it home with your effort. Thank you. I was especially touched by the Memorial to "your" Doc and the words spoken about him put tears in my eyes. I served with D 1/5 69-70 as a Corpsman and I am so proud and honored to be associated with men like you all. Semper Fi, Buzz.
Served with various units in 2D Marine Division Nov. 91 to Mar 95 and April 98 to Jan 01 with 3/8 during their Med Cruise 2-99 in Kosovo and Turkey. Naval Environmental and Preventive Medicine Unit No Seven (NEPMU 7).

Looking for Doc Ward
"Doc" was a Grunt... served with India Company 3/5, 1st Marine Division Viet Nam 1/69-8/13/69. During my tour we had 2 corpsmen, the first one I only knew as "tons of fun"... the second one was a Doc Ward came over from Canada to serve with us. Both these Corpsmen upheld the highest honor of Valor, and as the saying goes, we loved our Corpsmen.
be so special to me if I could locate these guys, especially Doc Ward.
I owe my life to him as do many a grunt. 1st platoon had got caught in
the meatgrinder in a place called "THE ARIZONA"... walked into
the 90th NVA regiment.
going to enclose his pic. On behalf of all the GRUNTS that served in Nam,
would appreciate any help locating any Brave Corpsmen that put their lives
on the line to patch our broken bodies up. Thank You for your time and
