The most hurtful words ever told to my face, was by a civilia Clinic Manager at Federal Way Orthopedics. As she listened to me talk with a fellow Veteran, she smiled and said, "You are no Medic..." Only if she knew what I had to do to earn that Combat Medic. Although I got to work with an incredible surgeon, I had to quit that job. Army values are important to me. SoldierMedic!
