"Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there." Blue skies, and say hi to Jerry for me, Marty.

Rest in Peace
Understand the problem; pull your weight. Appreciate. Be completely honest and trustworthy in all things. - Jeff Cooper

Practice honesty and integrity; rescue the man who has been wronged from the hands of his oppressor; do not exploit the stranger, the orphan, the widow; do no violence; shed no innocent blood in this place. Jer 22:3

Rest in Peace, Warrior .....................

I believe that SF is a 'calling' - not too different from the calling missionaries I know received. I knew instantly that it was for me, and that I would do all I could to achieve it. Most others I know in SF experienced something similar. If, as you say, you HAVE searched and read, and you do not KNOW if this is the path for you --- it is not....

Wierd and Wonderful Marty

Marty and I were in the 18D course together in 1991- I could tell you some stories (hahaha) about the stuff we got into at the CPT training at Ft. Carson (pre-10th SFG facility construction). I had the great fortune of serving with him in A 1-10th in the 90's, with him as my Sr. Medic. He was the first guy I ever knew with an email account (Hotmail account on a 56K dialup I recall), and he was just beginning to get into mutual funds... He had this idea about doing training schedules on computers, and not typewriters or with a pencil- what was he thinking!

I'll never forget what Marty told me as he sipped his Guinness lager out of the can, and it rings true even today, "you gotta get into their culture, learn their language, and remember that if you're pulling the trigger, somebody fu*ked up." And of course, it was in perfect German.

Rest in peace my wierd and wonderful old friend; we'll see eachother again, God willing.

I, too, had the good fortune to have worked with Marty in 1-10 and benefit from knowing him. He was a true role model for a young medic.

RIP, Marty.

I found a lot of stuff on him via a google search, and not too much of it was good.

Could be he fell in with some bad crowds.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910
