The Legacy Of Doctor Benjamin Tusten

I believe in a Medical War Memorial and Education Center.
 
During the Vietnam War, I got to see Navy Corpsmen serving in the Marine Corps' Combined Action Program (CAP).   If the Navy Corpsmen weren't under combat conditions, they would be treating our village's peasants medically.  When I was new to our CAP Team, it was required for new Marines to help our corpsmen out with daily village medical care.    (MEDCAPS,  they were called.) 
 
We had to help our corpsman for about two weeks.    Besides serving as security, the Marines were band-aid specialists.   We also gave a few baths.   The corpsmen did the heavy stuff.     (The Vietnamese peasants loved our corpsmen.)
 
Through the years after Vietnam,  I learned that many American medical personnel from all branches were doing some of the same things in Vietnam.   I also learned about the story of Sharon Ann Lane.     (1LT SHARON ANN LANE, Army Nurse Corps, was killed on duty in the Vietnamese Ward 4 of the 312th Evacuation Hospital.)      http://www.capveterans.com/caprd_045.htm
 
It's a shame that Americans never heard about these positive accomplishments.   Medical miracles and civil action stories from Vietnam are the stories that non-profit CAProductions will produce.
  
America is almost four (4)  years into this War on Terrorism, yet not one patriotic movie has come out about today's military heroes.    HOW MANY PATRIOTIC MOVIES DID HOLLYWOOD DO IN THE SAME TIME PERIOD DURING WORLD WAR II... ?        (Non-profit CAProductions will make sure this does not happen in the future.

Doctor Benjamin Tusten and Americans like him are what our school children should be considering heroes.    
http://home.earthlink.net/~godbless_america/_american_heroes/    (Forget the baseball, football and basketball heroes.) 
 
Doctor Tusten is a little known hero from the American Revolution.   He died in battle about 35 miles north of here on the Delaware River.   Below is a picture of the site where Doctor Tusten died.    Although the doctor was told by his superior officer that he better leave the battlefield in order to save his life, Tusten refused to leave.   Instead, although he was wounded himself, he continued to care for about 15 wounded Minutemen.    He died protecting these wounded.

As I am sure you are aware, improving our exposure is the only way we will be able to raise the money necessary to get this memorial built.  I appreciate your efforts in helping us achieve this worthwhile goal.

 
 
Hi,
     My name is Stephen J. Cook and I am the Executive Director of the National Combat Medical Memorial & Youth Education Center, and a disabled veteran.  Our goal is to have a memorial built to honor those military medical personnel that have heroically served (and continue to do so) the United States armed services.    
      I would like to mention that retired Gunnery Sgt. R. Lee Ermey, the actor famous for his role in Full Metal Jacket, has agreed to be our national spokesman.  Any assistance to our cause, which I am sure you will find to be a just cause, will be greatly appreciated.  Please see the below document for a better explanation of where we are at, and what we aim to do.  
     I can be reached at  stephen@medicalwarmemorial.org  or by phone at 816-734-9981. Thank you, for your time.

Mission Statement

National Medical War Memorial and Youth Education Center Project

 

Purpose

To perpetuate the heroic service of our Combat Medical Personnel through the construction of a permanent memorial, beautified with complimenting Botanical Gardens all focused on medical service from the Civil War to present.

To promote peace through education with the construction of an adjoining Museum and History Walk depicting scenes from each conflict and war from the Civil War forward.

To highlight and explain each role of every occupation which served in Combat Medical Service with special sections of the memorial wall complex.

To illustrate with pictures and text all those who received the Congressional Medal of Honor in Medical Service as the centerpiece of the memorial wall.

To cause enjoyment, education and entertainment through patriotic performances at the adjoining AmphiTheaterPatriotic, where performances will be conducted by students from across America.

To promote nature and outdoor skills through Period Encampments for youth and adult participants.

To promote fellowship with the gathering of veteran organizations at the Convention Center and Guest House where the veteran and their family participate in the multiple benefits of the memorial complex while rekindling friendships from years gone by.

Annual Report 2005

2005 was another busy year for the National Combat Medical War Memorial and Education Center. We continue to lay the groundwork for a professionally managed national fundraising campaign which will make the memorial a reality. Founder Charles “Chuck” Wright continues to cross the nation traveling several thousand miles to speak at and attend military reunions and veteran's events to continue the promotion of the National Combat Medical Memorial and Youth Education Center and raise funds in support of our effort. We continue to get involved in a number of fundraisers to raise capital even as we continue to seek out corporate sponsorships, donations and support.

We truly hope that our ground breaking efforts will bear fruit in a fitting memorial to combat medical personnel. It is to honor the military doctors, nurses and corpsmen and medics who saved so many lives in all of America's wars, declared and undeclared.

A  PIECE  OF  FORGOTTEN  AMERICAN  HISTORY
 
THE  BATTLE  OF  MINISINK.
 
                   HOSPITAL  ROCK               
hospital_rock.jpg 
 
One hero of this battle, the second in command of the American Militia, was wounded early in the battle.  A doctor by profession, instead of thinking of his own wound, he treated his fellow, wounded Americans at the rock above for hours.
 
Four hours into the battle, the tide turned against the American Militia.  The doctor was told by the Militiamen Leader to leave the battleground to save his own life.    He refused to leave the American wounded...
   
He died as he tried to save their lives.

I found this great PTSD article on a military base.   It was in a FAMILY MAGAZINE for American troops.
PTSD does not only hit our military men and women.    It impacts a great number of Americans, who never left home...
Child abuse, elderly abuse, marital abuse, street crime victims (rape), etc. are some of the biggest sufferers.
Understanding PTSD is a great way from keeping it from passing down through generations.

IS  HISTORY  REPEATING  ITSELF...
(Who Are Today's Terrorist Connections?)
 
Two recently discovered documents captured from the Vietnamese communists during the Vietnam War strongly support the contention that a close link existed between the Hanoi regime and the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) while John Kerry served as the group's leading national spokesman.
 
Researchers Troy Jenkins and Tom Wyld located the two Vietnamese communist documents referenced above in the archives of the Vietnam Center at Texas Tech University, in the Douglas Pike Collection. Douglas Pike was a leading authority on the Vietnam War who collected over 2 million pages of original documents now archived at the Vietnam Center. James Reckner, Ph.D., Director of the Vietnam Center at Texas Tech, verifies that the documents in the Pike collection are original and authentic. The Circular and the Directive are listed as items numbered 2150901039b and
2150901041 respectively.

Amnesty International: Insurgents are guilty

The Amnesty International report — "In Cold Blood: Abuses by Armed Groups" — said (terrorist) insurgents were guilty of direct attacks intended to cause the greatest possible loss of civilian life, indiscriminate attacks resulting in the deaths of civilians, targeting humanitarian organizations, abductions and killing captured and defenseless police and military personnel.

"There is no honor nor heroism in blowing up people going to pray or murdering a terrified hostage.  Those carrying out such acts are criminals, nothing less, whose actions undermine any claim they may have to be pursuing a legitimate cause," Amnesty said.
