CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. -- A new medical clinic will be named in honor of a Navy Corpsman who was killed in Afghanistan.
The U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command will dedicate the clinic to Hospital Corpsman Second Class Charles "Luke" Milam during a ceremony at Camp Lejeune on Friday. The clinic is one of only two medical facilities owned and operated exclusively by the Marine Corps.
Milam was killed in 2007 in Helmand Province during an attack on a Taliban stronghold. It was his fourth combat deployment.
