4th FSSG Marines - Dr Birdwell Hits 87

Navy Corpsmen of the Marine 4th FSSG 4th Medical Bn group at Dr Tom Birdwells 87th birthday. Doctor B. Was drafted in the marines out of college in 1950 and initially trained in the Navy SNJ in flight school but opted out after phase two. The Navy then put him through medical school and a career followed, which included the Navy Corpsmen here (including my brother, Jim Campbell) A magnificent conversation graced the event. I am glad they let this "tin can sailor" join the celebration. Buddy, checked shirt front, still carries a globe and anchor tie clip Dr. Birdwell gave him years ago. Chief, John (front right), received his marine cap after this photo. Thank you, Tom and Judy for a wonderful memory on Pensacola Bay. I've invited them all to my ship reunion in Pensacola Oct. 7. VETERANS Park and McGuires for lunch. You are welcome too!Www.ussocallahan.org
