Life in the military can be hard at times, but there are certain comforts that you will be able to enjoy as a part of your service. In the United States Navy, your health is taken very seriously at all times. It is one of the benefits that you will receive as a part of being an enlisted personnel member. Helping to make sure that you will be able to stay safe and in the best possible health is the job of the hospital corpsman.
What You Will Do
You will work on shore and on a ship to make sure that all of the sailors are receiving the proper amount of medical care and attention that they will need to perform their duties.
