The internet is unrelyable, check out a biography on old war mongering Chesty and you will see the quote. I will research which book I read it in, it has been a while. It is published though.

Ya, the above is a real quote.
Must not have worked.... than again, he did get 5 Navy Crosses and a whole shlue of other awards that would take an entire page to put on...

Wait, I thought he also you weren't a real Marine till you're NJP'd? Chesty was a crazy man... crazy indeed

Hi every one, this is my first post.
Hey Cpl S you sure Chesty said that, double check your sources then triple check, because for him that just seems like an urban legend made up by an enemy or something.

He was the most highly decorated Marine ever, started out as a private but retired a 3 star general, won 5 navy crosses, I could name all the medals he earned, but then my fingers would hurt.

General Lewis B. Puller never said that. That was misinformation distributed by his detractors during the Korean War.
He supposedly said that during the battle for Pelilu in 1944 when the 1st Marine Regt, Took nearly 70% causalties.

"Good Night Chesty! Where ever you are!"

The real one is:
