  1. When I was on Courtney I had an amusing experience at sick call. I had been aboard better than 6 months and made my first showing at Sick Call. I was not a regular, and pretty slow at heading aft and below to sick bay, so I ended up being the last guy. The Corpsman quickly disposed of the 12 guys ahead of me, rather perfunctorily, you might say. Then my turn.

    “Hardison,” says he, you look mighty sick. Turned out I was the only really sick guy he’d seen in a month (red eyes 103 degree temp and the runs). The QM gang was port and starboard and the Chief had to stand one mid-watch for me. I was that sick.

    I told the Corpsman I hated sick call and he instantly loved me. He treated me like a king. After that I didn’t go back to Sick Call until the new Corpsman came aboard 4 months later.
