News received this morning that retired Major Cliff Turcotte, Nurse Corps, 74th AES, has passed
away in Springfield, MA. Cliff and I were enlisted medics together, with him going on to a Flight Nurse commission and me, off to the Medical Service Corps.
A big, tough guy, Cliff loved the hard work he did in the 74th so very much, especially out in the field. He was never one to miss the opportunity to help another, to volunteer, to be the best he could be. A great Navy corpsman, he was a great aeromedical evacuation technician and then a great flight nurse. And a great friend.
Rest in peace, Cliff. God bless.
