Marine and Navy Corpsmen Memorial
Dedicated November 10th 2004
When the Marines associated with the Jacksonville Semper Fidelis Society wanted to establish a tribute to Marines from the community, it was understood that the special breed of sailor, the Corpsman, would equally share this tribute. Marines without Navy Corpsmen are like kites without strings. It has been the Navy Corpsmen who has kept Marines together in more ways than one. They are beacons of strength and pillars of compassion, unselfish and courageous. Corpsmen are and have always been held in the highest esteem amongst all Marines and we did not want this Marine emblem or the title Marine on this monument to be displayed without a reference to our brothers in blue.
