Dr. Jim Fruthaler, former Navy lieutenant junior grade reminisces with service members about his time in the military as a pediatrician at the Hadnot Point Medical Clinic located on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, May 1. Dr. Fruthaler, who received orders to MCB Camp Lejeune in 1951, helped establish the first pediatric clinic on base at historic Building 15. “It is very meaningful for us to have him here today,” said Cmdr. Daniel D’Aurora, director of branch clinics. “Listening to what he had to go through to stand up this clinic is a very unique experience.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Nathan Reyes)
