    FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A Navy corpsman has been honored by having his name added to a memorial wall at the special operations medical center at Fort Bragg.
    Petty Officer 2nd Class Charles “Luke” Milam was fatally wounded in combat in 2007 while with the 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion in Afghanistan.
    His name was added to the heroes’ wall Thursday at the Joint Special Operations Medical Training Center.
    The citation said after Milam was wounded, he and his team continued moving toward the enemy positions. Milam killed several with machine gun fire until he fell from his wounds.
    Sgt. 1st Class Charles Maxwell is an instructor at the school and said the memorial wall ensures that the names of medics won’t be forgotten.

    ...And shephards we shall be. For thee my lord, for thee. Power hath descended forth from thy hand. That our feet may swiftly carry out thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to thee. And teeming with souls shall it ever be. E Nomini Patri, E Fili, E Spiritu Sancti.
