Bill Sperb was the finest example of a corpsman that the Navy could ever produce. He was a shining hero and to this day, in lectures to college students, I talk about him, use his name and in that way, hope to keep him alive. Bill was attempting to break the record for medevacs and was in the last month of his first extension. He was going to be a doctor when he finally finished up in Nam. The world lost a great humanitarian and wonderful human being when it lost Bill. I miss him every day. Submitted by Bob Spear, Bill Sperb's friend and companion at Marble Mountain Air Field.
