This morning at a local yard sale I picked up a pocket case in mint condition for a WWII U.S. Navy Corpsman. There was also two patchs (one unissued) along with a 10 cent Servicemans Map of the United States, and a three page list of "Dates of Departures and Arrivals for his ship. The ship was the U.S.S. GENERAL H. W. BUTNER (AP-113), commissioned at Baltimore on 11 January 1944. The sailors name was Clyde R. Gray, a local man from Greene County, Tennessee, now deceased.

This is a great little grouping from a branch that largely goes unnoticed. Many of these guys hit the beaches with the Marines, armed only with a bag of bandages and the surgical kits like you see here. The Japanese also had a tendency to snipe Medics, so it was an extra-hazardous job. The Marines did reciprocate by allowing these brave Navy men the honor of wearing the Dress Green uniform if they so desired.
