SARCs who became Physician Assistants

Other then the late John D. Correia and Steve G. have any other SARCs become Physician Assistants? No names, just wondering if others continued their medical training.

A good friend of mine from medical school was a SARC and went on to become a cardiac anesthesiologist (MD). He was a Somalia vet with 1st Recon Bn.

I know at least a couple SARCs that are going through or preparing to go through PA school. I know a bunch of them that decided to go full retard and go the MD route (including yours truly).

There have been plenty, esp in the past 10yrs. A few have been instrumental in forming University relationships with the community as well.

I know of several. They are enjoying the PA life.

Those wusses could have easily transitioned to become docs, if they had the balls.

Dont taze me bros.

LOL, true but at 38 and just retiring from the Navy I was looking at a minimum of 7 more years verses 2 and some change. I have never looked back. Brother you need to put Vegas on your calendar and make it out. Johnson says he is looking forward to linking up.
