Description Bill Sperb, of Gresham, Oregon, was the finest example of a corpsman that the Navy could ever produce. Many Marines are alive today because of Bill's skills, committment, passion and courage.

Bill was attempting to break the record for medevac missions 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.

Bill flew out of Marble Mountain Air Facility in Danang. On the day he was killed he was flying with the Purple Foxes, HMM 364.

With this video, I hope to keep his name alive. I hope I have done justice to his memory.

"A Corpsman's Legacy".

God Bless all Corpsmen, past and present.
