You May Be Able To Save A Life

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

I received this note from a friend earlier today.

We’re looking for ethnic Korean donors to help save a dear friend’s life. If you were a Marine posted at Quantico there’s a good chance you received dental care from Naval Dentist Lt. Julie Jung. Post-military she provided free dental care to children from low-income families and child victims of trafficking and violence. Lt. Jung was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia in January (AML with FLT3 mutation) and urgently needs to find a bone marrow donor match. Julie’s life expectancy is only 2 months after her last round of Chemo which she is starting soon.  Her husband Lt. Cmdr Jung is still active duty.  Unfortunately, matches usually come from someone’s own ethnic group. If you have any Korean in your ancestry, please join the donor registry to see if you are a match at A testing kit will be sent to your home, and all you need to do is swab the inside of your cheek and send

the kit back. Your help is greatly appreciated!

MATBOCK Monday || Grave Robber

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Over the past few weeks, we have seen multiple new pouches from MATBOCK under the Grave Robber name to include the Vent Pouch, IV Pouch, Drug Roll, and Multi-Function Pouch.  The only piece missing was the below Grave Robber Bag.

The new pack from MATBOCK was designed in collaboration with expeditionary military physicians to meet operational requirements.  The pack holds all the pouches on the internal velcro backing and make it easy to access all compartments when hung from an airframe or wall for advanced operational medical treatment before the hospital.

The Grave Robber bag itself can be mounted to multiple frame systems to easy transport, has completed successful trials in the wind tunnel and freefall jump operations, and can also be mounted in MATBOCK’s medium size MR DRY system for water drops, OTB or underwater operations.

The bag folds open like a suitcase to display the entire contents and also features two hanging straps at the top for attachment to the airframe or wall.  The head pouch is designed to be carried independently if needed and hold the operator’s gear separate from the medical gear in the pack.

The kit comes with the Grave Robber Bag, 4 x Multi-Functional pouches, 1 x Drug Roll, 1 x Vent Pouch, 2 x IV Pouches and can be purchased with or without a Mystery Ranch NICE Frame.

More information can be found at  The first chance to see the entire system will be at SOMSA in Charlotte this May and SOFIC the week after.

Go Commando Show – Episode 40: Dr Brett Haake Performing a Stem Cell Procedure on Fred Galvin

Monday, April 9th, 2018

We recently introduced you to the Go Commando Show which featured an interview with SGM Rob Trivino (USA, Ret). If you missed it, go back and listen in.

However, in this latest episode, Dr Brett Haake performs a stem cell procedure on host Fred Galvin’s knees. So many of us have bad knees after our service that I thought this would be some great information. Fred tells me the procedure was six weeks ago and feels the results have been great.

Dr Haake explains the risks and rewards of stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapy. He is an Anesthesiologist, Stem Cell Physician and former Navy Medical officer who deployed to Afghanistan and multiple countries in Asia.
