Honoring a Navy legacy…retired Chief Boatswain Mate Jerry Irvine was surprised with a shadow box by Naval Hospital Bremerton command leadership and Chief’s Mess – presented to him by Master Chief Hospital Corpsman Tom Countryman - to honor his years of service, which included three tours in Vietnam and extensive duty during the Tet Offensive which started 55 years ago, January 31, 1968.  (Official Navy photo by Douglas H Stutz, NHB/NMRTC Bremerton public affairs officer).

He wasn’t a Navy doc, nor nurse, or hospital corpsman. Yet on the field of battle, his concern for others saved many a life. Long before retired Chief Boatswain Mate Jerry Irvine was delivering salty quips when receiving medical care at Naval Hospital Bremerton, the grizzled veteran was providing his own type of health care during a bitterly contested combat campaign.
