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!

Eugene Sledge Video

Just found this video featuring Eugene Sledge talking about some of his combat experiences. I found it very interesting.

Warning, this video is graphic and contains some descriptions that are very vivid.

Sledge wrote the book, With The Old Breed, and was one of the main characters in the HBO miniseries The Pacific.
