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!

Happy Veterans Day and Happy Birthday General Patton

Today we celebrate and remember the brave men and women who have fought and died for our freedom. We thanks each and everyone of you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Today is also the birthday of General George S. Patton, one of the greatest leaders to ever wear the uniform. God bless you sir and Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday General, This Cake Is For You And All The Proud Veterans Who Have Served!

I'll leave you today with the words of another great American.

“The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” -- Abraham Lincoln

God Bless!
