Introducing myself

This is Sean from Doc in the Box, might as well give a little intro about myself for those that haven't read my other blog. I originally joined the Navy in 91, missing the entire first gulf war while at school. Stationed at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station with VMFA (AW)-242 an F/A 18 squadron. Did two 6 month unit deployments with them. With them I went to Iwakuni Japan, Okinawa, Darwin Australia, Guam, Wake Island and Hawaii. Then a 4 year stint at the beautiful Naval Weapons Station China Lake (blah). One good thing about that place they had this thing called flex Fridays where you got every other Friday off. Can’t think of any others. Got out of the Navy in 99 to pursue a different career field, was out for 3 years in school and did something totally different from medicine. I'm one of those that came back in because of 9/11. Figured my skills could better used here. So I'm doing my little bit, saving lives when I can, making sure my guys stay healthy and keeping the families in touch with their loved ones. Blogging gives the rest of the world a snapshot of my mundane life (most days). I also run a photo blog that I started just to share my pictures and adventures which became a nice lifeline for the families of my guys. I look forward to adding my voice to the medical folk we have already gathered here.

You've been to all those places! Australia, Japan, and Hawaii. Hmf! I'm so jealous. I've been in the vicinity of China Lake-- close to Ridgecrest right? Ridgecrest is where my friends and I stay on our way to Death Valley.

After I read this post I was thinking why does China Lake sound familiar? Then I remembered that South China Lake Blvd is one of the main drags through town.

I just wanted to share with everyone the fact that I just read the AP article written by Ellen Simon, of the Associated Press, and published on September 26, 2004, and I just watched the Monday, September 27, 2004 television interview on KPNX-TV 12, of Phoenix, Arizona. This is important as I have read a lot of your posts at Doc In The Box and I recall the discussion about the Associated Press article (,2403,BSUN_19061_3211357,00.html) and the television footage(, but I never took the time to read or watch either of them. I must say that I was very impressed with your efforts prior to watching both of these; however, now that I have had the pleasure, I would tip my hat if I were wearing one. BZ my friend...BZ! If only there were more samples of your pride and determination amongst us, this world would certainly be a better place. BZ!!!!!

Hi Sean! Nice to catch you on another blog. I've brolled this site and a few other miliblogs that I found via DocintheBox.

The miliblogs serve an excellent purpose for the people "back home". We need to remember those giving their all everyday for peace and freedom.

Thanks for all you do..
