照片部分係民國69年,我個人在金門金東292師,擔任步兵連上尉連長一職,帶領全連接受營測驗與體能戰技5千公尺跑步時所攝,而照片右前方戴防毒面具行軍與率領部隊跑步的就是我本人。

Dr. Lee

I am sure you would have done well in infantry.

碩士學位二年取得非難事,但要在民國70年代的野戰部隊服役近二年,本島外島,在那缺乏睡眠,步兵連走路也可睡覺之下,每個人調劑身心的方式也不一,當兵近二年其實那二年是每天24小時除休假均在部隊中,一般人工作8個鐘頭便下班了,所以當兵的一天是十分漫長的。 醫學院畢業去服役二年,那些躲過兵役的同學, 可能笑我們這些守法的人"笨", 然而,退伍24年後,當我在同學聚會時大家談起服役之回憶時, 「想當年我在金門當醫官...」「我在陸戰66師」「哦我在269師,楊梅啦!」「我在東引才最苦...」只見那些曾用盡方式逃過兵役的同學坐在角落若有所思

去年返台同學會,見到許多24年沒見到之同學,大家多中年近50了,但談起軍中回憶,似乎在那時候大家又看見年青的自己,去年才知道班上同學竟有一半以上在外島服役

This was our story. Standing tall and defend own country. Be proud as always!

咬定青山不放鬆,立根原在破岩中。千磨萬擊還堅勁,任爾東西南北風。 (清‧鄭板橋‧

When a story is told, it is not forgotten. It becomes something else. The memory of who WE WERE. The hope of what we can become.

You are right on by stating 那時流行畢業兩年後開業賺錢, 真的也很賺, 不少人一年可賺上千萬, 因此會嘲笑那些在部隊當醫官的同學. Nevertheless, it also reflected our culture back in those days. Just like what we learned in Economics 101-It all comes down to incentives. They had incentives to cheat as their goal is to make quick profit and avoid serving in the Army.

Not everyone can survive in infantry or for that matter special forces. It requires one to have characters and competency. Last but not least, the leadership skills (Infantry Motto: Follow Me!)

高温35度C, 著甲種服裝,鋼盔背包步槍裝備...可達30KG, 全部人員入列行軍,一個營測驗下來500公里大拉鏈, 由二兵到連長,行軍在縱貫公路旁,在中央山脈...沒有死角,任何關係也在這種高温高壓下完全瓦解, 看那下士班長來回嚴厲斥責落隊新兵,但又幫新兵背裝備, 營長在雨中連雨衣也沒穿幫行軍中的步兵加油, 那中尉副連長担心著飯車尚未到, 上尉連長在吉普車前用指北針看軍用地圖向步排下命令...

野戰部隊沒有個人只有連隊, 一切為那連旗, 聽過營測驗完行軍返師部步兵營步兵之答數嗎? 269師師長肩上那顆星,正代表一萬二千人的重裝師, 我們全是步兵,勿論兵科, 醫官一樣入列 No exception

That was the Army I know.

In my two years serving with the 29th Division, I had seen many competent career officers (most Army Academy graduates) with characters. Many of them later on got promoted to generalship. I was not surprised. That was the ARmy way. It should still be the Army way. But our Army is no longer the Army I associated with in those days. It is demoralizing and sad.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I had more inclination for airborne troops and aviation medicine than infantry.

二三十年前, 醫學系四成不用服兵役, 有些人找不到理由, 甚至用自發性氣胸來免除兵役. 那時流行畢業兩年後開業賺錢, 真的也很賺, 不少人一年可賺上千萬, 因此會嘲笑那些在部隊當醫官的同學. 現在想想, 醫學系畢業兩年根本連診斷疾病都有問題, 讀了七年醫學院, 二十幾歲到五十幾歲只有診所的經歷, 自己每天都不知道在診斷些甚麼, 治療些甚麼, 這樣行醫, 這樣的醫學, 會不會太膚淺了?!
