GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. ON 17 JUNE 2014, THE U.S. NAVY HOSPITAL CORPS WILL CELEBRATE THEIR 116TH ANNIVERSARY.
2. ON BEHALF OF ALL MARINES, I EXTEND OUR GENUINE AND MOST HEARTFELT CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE U.S. NAVY HOSPITAL CORPS UPON THE OCCASION OF THEIR 116TH ANNIVERSARY.
3. SINCE 1898, MARINES HAVE ENJOYED AN ENDURING BOND WITH THE NAVY HOSPITAL CORPS. FROM THE INCEPTION OF THE HOSPITAL CORPS TO THE PRESENT, YOUR UNWAVERING COMMITMENT TO OUR MARINES CONTINUE TO BE RECOGNIZED. WHETHER DEPLOYED OR IN GARRISON, YOU HAVE PROUDLY SERVED ALONG SIDE OUR MARINES AND PROVIDED WORLD CLASS CARE TO THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES ACROSS THE GLOBE. AS OUR CORPS CONTINUES TO TRANSFORM, THE CONTINUED RELIANCE UPON "DOC" HAS NEVER BEEN MORE CRITICAL. AS WE PREPARE FOR CHALLENGES AHEAD, WE TAKE GREAT COMFORT IN KNOWING THAT OUR CORPSMEN WILL CONTINUE TO BE AT OUR SIDE AS THEY HAVE DONE FOR THE LAST 116 YEARS.
4. AS YOU CELEBRATE AND REFLECT UPON YOUR HERITAGE, KNOW THAT EVERY MARINE GREATLY APPRECIATES YOUR MANY SACRIFICES AND SELFLESS DEDICATION TO OUR COUNTRY, OUR FAMILIES, AND THE MARINES OF OUR CORPS. ON BEHALF OF EVERY MARINE, CIVILIAN MARINE, FAMILY MEMBER AND FRIEND OF THE CORPS, I WISH EVERY HOSPITAL CORPSMAN A HAPPY 116TH.
5. SEMPER FIDELIS, JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
