Here is my Vietnam Marine Medic . Although strictly speaking he is a U.S Navy Corpsman , as the Marines did not have their own Medics , they were furnished with them from the Navy . These Sailors were equipped and dressed in the same way as the Marines they accompanied . They dug in and faced the enemy exactly the same as their fellow Marines , and took great risks to attend to their buddies under fire . This made the Medics well liked , and respected for their courage . Most Medics only carried a weapon for personal protection , normally a pistol . Medics were a prized target for the NVA and V.C  , and so tried as best they could to look like a Grunt . Some even carried rifles , even if they had no intention of using it . Apart from attending wounds , the Navy corpsman , made sure the grunts took their malaria pills , and looked after their general health . They also made the decisions to medivac the sick or wounded .  My medics ammo bandolier  (made from scratch) is full of field dressings , the rubber tube on his right shoulder is used for tourniquets , he carries plenty of water , gut wounds needed to be kept moist .... his Unit one Medic bag contains a large amount of medical equipment , including field dressings of different sizes , wound powder , morphine , malaria tablets ect ect . He has a couple of field dressings tucked into his helmet band for quick access . Medics were often referred to in a friendly manner as  " Doc " by the Grunts .

Outstanding work Chip! I love all the small details, like all those medical dressings, such a cool touch. You also found a terrific looking head sculpt for him too. I think this guys is my new fave! Top work indeed! bounce bounce bounce

Another FANTASTIC figure Chip!!

Your attention to detail is unsurpassed!

In the WWII TV show Combat! the medics are also
called "Doc." But I really like that marked
on his helmet, and the peace sign.

Some years ago, I heard that the Vietnamese
made it a point to wound a soldier, because
two others would take him off the field of battle,
therefore basically taking three enemies out of
the battle. I don't know if that is true. You seem to
have a lot more knowledge of that conflict than I
have.

Thanks for those kind comments , I wish I had made those little accessories Dave , but I believe they are from one of DiD`s U.S Medics , I have picked up lots of Medic bits over the years , just now got round to putting him together .

@ Daryl , The NVA and V.C Snipers were notorious for wounding a troop in the open , to lead other U.S troops to his rescue , often the medic who they would try and wound too . They would attempt to bait as many troops as they could , until they either had the sense to leave , or had an air strike or gunship called on their position , even this was not always successful in neutralising them .
