Mitchell, Bob, Bob was a career person in the military. At the time of his enlistment He resided in Toms River, NJ. He served on active duty from April 1961 until November 1980, when He was eligible to retire with full pension.
He served "in country", as a field medic or "Corpsman" with the 3rd Marine Division. Although He was a Navy Corpsman, they are attached to the U.S. Marines because the Marines come under the Department of the Navy. They do not have their own medical corps, so they serve with them as part of their duty throughout their career.
Bob served in Vietnam from Nov 1966 to Nov 1967, earning the Combat Action Ribbon, and numerous other awards and medals. He continued his career, serving on several Navy ships, and overseas assignments until he was honorably discharged upon retirement of a 20 year career.
