Marines Dedicate New Clinic To Fallen Corpsman

A new medical clinic will be named in honor of a Navy Corpsman who was killed in Afghanistan.

The U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command will dedicate the clinic to Hospital Corpsman Second Class Charles "Luke" Milam during a ceremony at Camp Lejeune on Friday. The clinic is one of only two medical facilities owned and operated exclusively by the Marine Corps.

Milam was killed in 2007 in Helmand Province during an attack on a Taliban stronghold. It was his fourth combat deployment.

    Glad to see that the Marines are honoring this fallen hero. Most people don't realize that the Marines get their "field medics" from the Navy. These Corpsman are trained extensively and are also in the combat zone, too. My son is a Navy Corpsman serving with Marines. Please pray for all our troops.
