GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  ON BEHALF OF ALL MARINES, IT IS MY PLEASURE TO
SALUTE THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE HOSPITAL CORPS ON THE OCCASION OF
YOUR 107TH ANNIVERSARY.  
2.   SINCE 1898, THE HOSPITAL CORPS HAS ANSWERED OUR NATION'S CALL
WITH COURAGE, HONOR, AND PROFESSIONALISM.  TODAY, AS IT HAS SO MANY
TIMES BEFORE, THE CALL "CORPSMAN UP" ECHOES ACROSS FAR-FLUNG
BATTLEFIELDS WHEN MARINES ARE IN THEIR GREATEST TIME OF NEED.
WITHOUT FAIL, THE HOSPITAL CORPSMEN OF THE UNITED STATES NAVY ANSWER
THAT CALL, AND COUNTLESS MARINES ARE ALIVE TODAY BECAUSE OF YOUR
SELFLESS DEDICATION AND PERSONAL SACRIFICE.  
3.  AS YOU CELEBRATE THE MANY ACHIEVEMENTS IN YOUR PROUD LEGACY,
KNOW THAT YOU HAVE THE RESPECT AND GRATITUDE OF THE ENTIRE MARINE
CORPS.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND SEMPER FIDELIS, M. W. HAGEE, GENERAL,
UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
