Who is Kelly Abbott?
He had been their Navy corpsman, the medical officer. He was slim and wiry, with unremarkable brown hair and eyes a variable color between blue and gray. His manner was unassuming and affable, but he was the only member of their six-man team who’d been undefeated in sparring matches. He was hell on wheels with or without a weapon. (Divide & Conquer)
NAVY CORPSMAN a/k/a HOSPITAL CORPSMAN
A Hospital Corpsman (HM) is an enlisted medical specialist of the United States Navy who serves with U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps units. They are the only enlisted corps in the United States Navy.
The Hospital Corpsman works in a wide variety of capacities and locations, including shore establishments such as naval hospitals and clinics, aboard ships, and as well as the primary medical caregivers for sailors while underway.
Hospital Corpsmen are frequently the only medical care-giver available in many fleet or Marine units on extended deployment. In addition, Hospital Corpsman perform duties as assistants in the prevention and treatment of disease and injury and assist health care professionals in providing medical care to Sailors and their families. They may function as clinical or specialty technicians, medical administrative personnel and health care providers at medical treatment facilities.
They also serve as battlefield corpsmen with the Marine Corps, rendering emergency medical treatment to include initial treatment in a combat environment. Qualified hospital corpsmen may be assigned the responsibility of independent duty aboard ships and submarines; Fleet Marine Force, SEAL and Seabee units, and at isolated duty stations where no medical officer is available.
Training is similar to basic training for the United States Marine Corps. Students must pass the physical fitness assessment (PFA), be able to accomplish multiple hikes for extended periods with weighted gear and utilize urban warfare and navigation tactics during field operations.
Students must become proficient with the basics of invasive techniques such as needle thoracentesis, cricothyroidotomy, intraosseous device placement, intravenous therapy etc. Practical application labs as well as written tests are administered regularly during the training to establish competency. Students train daily in all weather conditions, and must learn how to disassemble, clean, and reassemble their M4 rifles.
The basic training for Hospital Corpsmen is conducted at the Medical Education and Training Campus, located at the Joint Base, Ft. Sam Houston, TX, one of the Navy’s “A” schools (primary rating training). Upon graduation, the Hospital Corpsman is given the Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) code of HM-0000, or “quad-zero” in common usage.
Hospital Corpsmen can further specialize; they may undergo further training to become Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman, or SARC. They are usually found in both the FMF Recon, Marine Division Recon and MARSOC units. They are trained and skilled in combat, including combatant swimming, opened/closed circuit scuba diving, military free-fall and amphibious operations. They act as advisers regarding health and injury prevention, and treat illnesses from decompression sickness as well as other conditions requiring hyperbaric treatment.
I never gave much thought to Kelly before, but now ….. damn. He’s quickly becoming my newest obession.
If you are like me and completely ignorant of the rankings in the military, you may find this helpful in understanding how Ty compares to Chas Turner rank- wise and what type of position over himTurner may have had:
Private First Class
Staff Sergeant (TY’S RANK)
Master Gunnery Sergeant
Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps (special)
Chief Warrant Officer 2
Chief Warrant Officer 3
Chief Warrant Officer 4
Chief Warrant Officer 5
Captain (Chas Turner’s Rank)
In the United States uniformed services, captain is a Commissioned officers rank. Commissioned officers derive authority directly from a sovereign power and, as such, hold a commission charging them with the duties and responsibilities of a specific office or position. Commissioned officers are typically the only persons, in an armed forces environment, able to act as the commanding officer (according to the most technical definition of the word) of a military unit.
In keeping with the traditions of the militaries of most nations, the rank of Captain varies between the services, being a senior rank in the naval services (marines and navy) and a junior rank in the ground (army) and air forces.
For the naval rank, a captain is a senior officer of pay grade O-6 (the sixth officer rank), typically commanding seagoing vessels, major aviation commands and shore installations.
I’m going to guess that Turner was at least the 2nd in command if not the 1st of the 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, which Ty belonged to. Right now in real life, a Lieutenant Colonel is command of it which is only 2 ranks higher than a Captain. So it’s not implausible.
Just rebloging to say: Steph…girl, you blow me away with the amount of though and time and love you put on these series. I wish I could kiss you for that. Seriously. You make me proud of being in this fandom!
Very well done. I’m reblogging not only because this is good info, but to let you know that at the time of the scene you’re talking about, Ty was a Corporal…
Touch & Geaux Feels Bomb with blue balls NOS
Feels Bomb with blue balls NOS
seriously how does the DSM not have a specification for this shit
….. what does NOS mean in this context? Is it “no”? like in “oh noes!” :/
NOS = “Not Otherwise Specified”
It’s when the someone’s symptoms fall within the general disorder but does not meet the specific criteria for the subgroups within that category, or “umbrella.”
For example, under the “Feels Bomb with blue balls” diagnosis (hereafter designated FB/bb), there might be “Sherlock Disorder,” “Destiel Feels,” and “Sterek UST.” Each of these will have a list of symptoms specific to that subgroup, and you must have a minimum number of symptoms on that list to be diagnosed.
If you have symptoms consistent with generalized FB/bb but do not meet the criteria for the subsets, you can be labeled FB/bb-NOS. If the American Psychiatric Association decides that Touch & Geaux is a prevalent enough disorder with highly specific symptoms, they can edit future editions, such as the DSM-V, to include this subset. Doing so would remove the “NOS” tag and allow for a more specialized diagnosis and treatment of affected minions.
Oh, so that’s what it means…
Someone on FB mentioned that the minions need their own 12 steps program. And I couldn´t agree more.
The FBI is going to come after me as a cult leader soon. I’m going to be all, ‘oooh, can you pull gun for me?!’
