About this Item

As published for the Military Book Club. Unused, Unread. Binding is still 'uncracked' and is tight. From dust jacket: All his life, Greg McPartlin wanted to be a Marine Corpsman, a medic skilled at saving lives. Three months of bagging-and-tagging bodies during Vietnam's Tet Offensive took the luster off of being a Marine - but not off McPartlin's desire to serve his country. After assisting in the sea recovery of Apollo 11 - the first ship to bring men to the moon - the twenty-year-old McPartlin was redeployed to Vietnam as an elite Navy SEAL. Barred as a medic by the Geneva Convention from the make-or-break training considered vital to service as a Navy SEAL, McPartlin had to show he had what it took. But McPartlin had been in country before. In a war where you partied with your buddies in Saigon one day and crawled through an enemy infested jungle hell the next, he proved that he was not only an outstanding medic but a rael Navy SEAL - the toughest of the tough. 'Combat Corpsman' is McPartlin's account of his year in what had been a Viet Cong stronghold until the SEALs took control - and Charlie placed bounties on the "men with green faces." It is the first inside story of a Navy SEAL medic, a man who wanted to heal - not to kill - but did both to save lives.' Inventory #08-001877-3715. Bookseller Inventory # 001877
