A hospital corpsman (HM) /ˈkɔːrmən/ (or corpsman for short) is an enlisted medical specialist of the United States Navy, who may also serve in a U.S. Marine Corps unit.  These sailors wear USMC uniforms EXCEPTION USMC's Dress Blues.

The FMF pin itself has a beautiful design. It's an extension of the Marine Corps' Eagle, Globe, and Anchor, adorned with a wave that's crashing onto a beach, signifying the historical sands of Iwo Jima. Two crossed rifles lie behind the globe, symbolizing the rifleman's ethic that this program is designed to instill into sailors assigned to Marine Corps units.
