Seaman Joseph Frepan, a hospitalman assigned to Parris Island starts his day at midnight, hours before any recruits wake up, to prepare medical supplies for the next company’s Crucible. The training doesn’t start until he arrives on site.  As one of many U.S. Navy Corpsmen assigned to Parris Island, Frepan’s top priority is the recruits’ physical and mental welfare

 “Most people don’t understand the amount of time that it takes for us to be fully prepared for [the crucible] The most rewarding part about being a Corpsman is when you get to help someone. Even though a lot of the time you aren’t recognized for it, it’s still helping people who need it, and it’s worth all the effort.”
