The road to hell is paved with the bleached bones of Marine Second Lieutenants who fail to put out their local security.

LGen "Chesty" Puller is an awesome military person to quote, second only to Patton.

Hey, if he weren't out of his mind, would we be quoting him?

Are not all Marines a little "Off"?

Another Chesty Quote:

"When the new recruit is standing in front of his D.I., he knows what he had to do, what his D.I. wants him to do, his Mama, his Daddy, his leader says to do. But what our whole recruit training program is heading towards is that Marine doing what he has been trained for when his leader, or any other "senior" is not there looking over him. Those moments when he is alone in combat, and he has to rely on one person, himself!"

Semper Fi...

There will never be another Chesty Puller. Men like that do not grow on trees. We can only celebrate his legacy, and thank God Almighty that such a man was loaned to us when we needed him. I've got an ex- Jarhead in my immediate family, and he, bad-boy-biker that he is, will stand at attention and salute when Chesty is mentioned. Well, so do I. Chesty Puller was a man's man, and anyone who thinks otherwise needs a history lesson or an a**-whipping.

He was amazing... took such a dire situation(I believe his Company was surrounded by 50+ enemy companies and they somehow made it out) and turned it into an amazing feat. I'll always be thankful for such a man.
