I served in the First Gulf war and did combat tours after and I have never seen a front line corpsman carrying a rifle as issue. Might happen in REMFs but in never happened in the 6th or 8th or the 7th Marines what unit were you with that issued rifles to docs? It's definately not a common occurance at all. I once saw some Marine tankers riding in a T-72 we captured that doesn't make it common place.
