Took Your Position at Bethesda
My Fellow Corpsman – Glad I met such an Outstanding Sailor and Doc
I followed your ‘footsteps’. I worked with Gertie and Dr. Stein on 7 side. I sat at your desk and typed on your typewriter. I became friends with you what little time I was with you during the transition. You were married several weeks before leaving to RVN and word came back that hit such an emotional nerve among all those who knew you. I shall never forget you. I left Bethesda, a wonderful staff and hospital and headed for RVN. Before I left Delaware, there was a cut back and I received a Red Cross speedletter that I was going to Iwakuni, Japan. I was on a baby hold…so I could see my baby, Judy, born before going to RVN. She saved my life. I was ready to go as you were to serve we followed the same footsteps…but the timing was off at the end. Your memory still lives within me and I thank you for your sacrifice to our country. God Bless your family who had to endure your loss. I hope I serve as much purpose on earth before I go as you did serving your country. Always in my thoughts and heart…. HM2 at Bethesda….now retired LCDR H. Alan Campo. I welcome emails from friends I hope to find again someday.
