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!

William Foley Jr. -- A Rifleman in Patton's Ghost Corps

William Foley Jr. is a painter, author, and World War Two combat veteran. As a rifleman in the 94th Infantry Division, Foley Jr. saw war firsthand and he draws on those memories to create some of the finest battlefield artwork around. His experiences during the Battle of the Bulge became the backdrop for his many murals, painting, and sketches. Foley Jr. is also the author of Visions From a Foxhole: A Rifleman in Patton's Ghost Corps, and his artwork has been shown in museums, art galleries, and government buildings.
