Glenn,

Could be?

I went by Witch Doctor.

Served from '68 - '88.  Hated the M-16 mattie Mattel special.  Carried 
an XM-14E2 whenever the stupid M16 stock cracked as they ALWAYS did!
Medical was INDEED my specialty.

Worked for Army & Navy in 'those' endeavors.

Been around a bit in the 'old' days.
