HM1 Gallardo, (IDC), USN

Devil DOc in IraqLast April, during the Iraqi invasion, I was watching MSNBC and saw one of my former corpsmen on TV. He made me proud of him and those like him, and I blogged about him at the time.

Last night, he found me through that entry here! My then HM3 Joe Gallardo is now HM1 Gallardo, and is an Independent Duty Corpsman (think PA school focused on the active duty person). He sent me the picture that accompanies this post, and that’s him in Iraq.

He also bragged on his family, three good looking kids, one on the way, and a spouse strong enough to raise a family and support a Navy man. I hope to hear more about him in the future, as his is as bright as I can imagine.

I said it then, and I’ll keep saying it: I’m glad he, and others like him are out there for us.

Does Future posting really work?

Sorry, another test before I use this for an actual post. Getting my cron job syntax down has not been as easy as I would have thought.

For those using MT 3.11, here’s the syntax that worked for me:

cd www/cgi-bin/mt; ./tools/run-periodic-tasks

Kevin, M.D.

Kevin, M.D. – Medical Weblog
I’m not very good about linking to new blogs. The ones with the pics over in the sidebar are daily reads (yes, all of them, I have no life). Also, I’ve linked to “new” blogs before that died quick, abandoned deaths, so I’m not in a hurry to link to medical blogs.

With that big buidlup, the aforementioned Kevin, M.D. is very good, and has been on a roll for a good while. I have a couple of others I need to add (email me if you’re reading and think I’m ignoring you), and eventually I’ll get around to adding Kev’s pic in the sidebar.

Welcome aboard, Kevin!
