Lewis Puller enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1918 at the age of twenty. That day he and the Corps formed a bond that would forever link them together in history. "Chesty" received his nickname for his barrel chest, but he became a legend in his own time while serving valiantly in Haiti, Nicaragua, the Pacific during WW2, and Korea. His record of earning five Navy Crosses for valor has never been matched, nor has his place in Marine Corps history as one of the finest combat officers ever. Good night, Chesty Puller, wherever you are!

Chesty Puller Loved Him Some Cake

Did General Puller love cake or what? You don't believe me? Check out these pictures.

 Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.
Chesty with another big-ass cake

Exhibit C.
What do you think Chesty was looking at when this picture was taken?


So there you have it. The man was a Bad-Ass Marine, but he had a serious cake addiction. I forgive him, we all have our little vices.
