Joseph Poquiz | Navy Corpsman, 3rd Marine Division (Attached) - Navy

9:11   |   At first, the wounds were simple. A lot of frag wounds and Corpsman Joseph Poquiz was thankful. One day when he was on radio watch inside an abandoned house, an insurgent threw a hand grenade into the room. There were two Marines in there with him. He was the lucky one. He only had a concussion.
