Marine Corps. vs. Navy ~ The Master Chief Petty Officer and the Master Gunnery Sergeant, two old friends, one a Marine and one a Sailor meet in a bar one day (I know it may be hard to imagine either a Sailor or a Marine being in a bar.) They began to discuss which of them had had the more difficult and dangerous 30 year career. The retired Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant begins: I graduated from high school, the next morning I was on the train for Parris Island, South Carolina. Following boot camp I found myself in a regiment assigned to the Iwo Jima assault. With my fellow Marines we fought our way to the top of Mount Suribachi. In Korea I was with Chesty Puller at Inchon, then we fought our way toward the Yalu River. In the cold Korean winter we fought at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, I ended my career after Viet Nam where I spent 3 months in the Battle of Khe Sanh after stomping through endless rice paddies. The Navy Master Chief looked him in the eye and took a long draw on his bottle of beer and sai ...
The "War is a racket" speech was written by Smedley Butler. It wasn't Chesty Puller.
Someone posted a comment earlier about how our military is corrupt and owned by corporations and it got me fired up. I love this video and its message. What do you think makes America great? Active Self Protection is owned by a military veteran who proudly wore the uniform for 8 years. My grandfather served under Chesty Puller in WWII, a combat wounded Marine. My pop is a Vietnam veteran of the 3rd Recon Battalion. Look them up. We are proud of our country and proud of our military. If you dislike the political system we're in, fine. If you're not a fan of the American way, I am okay with that. If you're openly disrespectful to my brothers and sisters who carry the torch to protect the Republic today, GET OFF MY PAGE. Unlike it or shut up, because otherwise I will ban you without hesitation. I got this video from the MALC Training Institute. Great work by them.
If you haven't liked Silkies V2.0, you're wrong. Go there, give em a like, and tell em Chesty Puller's Ghost sent ya!!
Don't you forget that you're First Marines! Not all the communists in *** can overrun you! ~Chesty Puller, USMC
Suffice to say, it was men like George Marshall, Chesty Puller, and *** Winters who won WWII rather than FDR.
Share these and teach a friend. Chesty Puller Coast Redwood. Around 2010 taken by Gerald Beranek & 2013 taken by Mario Vaden. Note the change in foreground vegetation density.

I saw a student in a Marine Corps uniform on campus today for the first time. His sleeves were poorly rolled, he was wearing a back pack, his cover was slumped over in the front obscuring the EGA, the brim nearly flat and parallel to the deck, trousers hanging too low over the boots with the blousing all off, his skivvy shirt was too big letting it sag in the collar, carrying a water bottle in his right hand, and there were no name tapes on the uniform. I slowed my truck and eyed this kid and noticed all of that within 10 seconds while Chesty Puller's ghost was floating above him shedding tears of sadness. Later I parked and went on upper quad to ask a cadet what solar eclipse star aligning moment must have occurred that caused *** to freeze over and marpat to be authorized. I asked if the chain of command was aware of this and if it was indeed legit, apparently it is. I think it is funny how camouflage is designed to break up your pattern, conceal you, and make you less visible to the enemy, but as soon ...
Thank you Chesty Puller for allowing me another 4yrs in this beloved gun club. Time to motivate the world, and destroy ALL who are against freedom. FI
A simplistic breakdown of the lessons I learned as a Marine: 1. Screen for strength of character 2. Be chrystal clear in communicating expectations 3. Give trust and empower your people to execute according to your clearly communicated expectations 4. GET THE *** OUT OF THE WAY AND LET YOUR PEOPLE GET THINGS DONE! (who are leaders themselves) 5. Review lessons learned 6. Give them all the credit for the success they create I was no Chesty Puller. I was a Marine officer who was surrounded by great Marines, who were great
After doing a casual perusal of random internet stuff (great for Trivial Pursuit), I came across some quotes from Lt Gen Chesty Puller the most decorative Marine to have ever laced up. The cool stuff about "they have us surrounded is awesome because now we know where they are to kill them" stuff is great. The one that stands out is when he asked "Where do you put the bayonet?" after seeing a flamethrower for the first time. That is a warrior right there, not only is he giddy to be able to get up close and personal to kill it with fire but to also wanting the ability to stab as that is a warrior (sorry Army buddies, only Patton can too that and ya'll got him because of Cav)
You have NO BUSINESS representing your district, Democrat. Chesty Puller would be ashamed, Hollywood Marine!
I see your Bill Murray Chive shirt and raise you a Chesty Puller HTFU!
Marines will enjoy this about Chesty's son,
Being a leader means to stand in the front. We need a Patton, or a Chesty Puller, not a clown.

Working on a story about Chesty Puller. I know many have been done, but now it's my turn. This should be fun.

One day I hope to be like Chesty Puller.
I can understand his advice to you. He was under Chesty Puller then and Chesty got the job done. The Navy left them too.
I was born on Chesty Puller's birthday. The day the Marines took Belleau Wood. People usually just assume I'd like to super size my meal.
Hello Runners! It has been a while since I've touched base with everyone (and we've even gotten a couple more recruits!) If you are NOT interested in receiving these emails, please let me know. I have not formally organized any current run training for us but I thought it would be fun to get everyone together this Saturday morning at 0900 for a run (15FEB). The meeting place will be where we met in the fall, at the top of the Riverwalk in the park at the end of 10th Avenue. I may not be able to run but LT Nunez will be there to lead who does show up. There are also some events shown below that you could participate in! I am doing the Chesty Puller and plan on wearing my team shirt so if you're interested in doing that, let me know! I had every intention of planning some Saturdays to run the course, or even some Wednesday morning sessions on Cardiac Hill during PT to do hill work. Let me know if you're interested in this and we can work something out- It has been a crazy few weeks. I hope everyone is well ...
This is something my husband originally wrote (and then edited after retiring) one dark night at sea.     Warrior     I am a warrior. I'm overweight, over 50, and retired from active military service, but I am still a warrior. It's in the blood, not the years. I have always been here and I will always be here.   I was John Paul Jones' helmsman when he roared he had not yet begun to fight and I stamped my frozen feet and cheered when a surrounded, outnumbered, Tony McAuliffe said “Nuts!” to a German offer of honorable surrender. In the brutal cold of another winter half a world away, I followed Chesty Puller to and from the Chosin Reservoir.   My nationality doesn't matter, it's changed a thousand times in ten thousand lifetimes. I was a Legionnaire with Danjou of the wooden hand when we chose to die in the flames and Mexican bullets at Camerone rather than lay down our arms and walk to safety. The “Legion of the Damned” has had many warriors. To the wild challenge of pipes at ...
Before I sleep tonight and get ready to watch the Super Bowl if I can after college tomorrow, I'm ready to say something important. It's 18 days to go... before yet another glorious anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of Iwo Jima and the death of a great US Marine hero of his generation. He served in my country the Philippines for a few years in the late 1930s when he was in the US Army with the 36th Infantry and gained extra money from being a boxer in Manila, thus earning him the nickname "Manila John". And 2 years after moving to the Marines and serving in the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines under Chesty Puller, under the more larger 1st Marine Division, his heroic exploit in the defense of American positions in Guadalcanal would result in him wearing in Melbourne, Australia, the highest medal for heroism in the US Armed Forces: THE MEDAL OF HONOR. He returned to his fatherland triumphant and leading his people in the war effort at home, but made his choice to join his fellow Marines in the battlefie ...
I am really impressed with his reports for Young Marines too. He did one on Chesty Puller and one on the Korean War ... remember he is in 4th grade and he typed and formatted all by himself ... this is one proud momma! The Korean War (June 25, 1950-July 27, 1952) This war was a war between the Republic of Korea and the Democratic Peoples of Korea. Japan ruled Korea from 1910 to 1945. At the end of World War 2, the Soviets and the United States met at the 38th parallel and made a deal so the US administered South Korea and the Soviets, North Korea. When this deal ended and we pulled out since we deprived the south of guns the north invaded. The United Nations made a dash to get there forces there by the time they got to Korea the North Koreans had pushed the South Koreans to the Pusan perimeter. We pushed hard till we got to the parallel we got vicious and pushed into North Korea. Then the Chinese attacked in till we were cut in half. That is when in the Chosen Reservoir Chesty Puller and his men took a .. ...
Both of these men are Legendary leaders. Chesty Puller is a Marine Corps deity. While Patton set the standard for the entire Pacific Campaign, up until the Island Hopping Campaign. If you ask any Marine who Chesty Puller is, they will tell you that Lt. Gen. Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller is one of the "Marine's Marines." General James "Mad Dog" "Chaos" Mattis is rapidly approaching, if not already surpassed, Chesty. Lets all take a moment, and bow our heads in homage to Patton, and Puller. Sinner

Did you know that Chesty Puller never received a Combat Action Ribbon? The award was created February 17 1969, with retroactive capabilities going back to March 1961. However, due to illness LtGen Puller was forced to retire in 1955 after decades of legendary service. In fact, after the start of the Vietnam War, he tried to get back into the Corps, but unfortunately he was denied reenlistment. Would he have rated one if it was created sooner? Let's ask the Communist Troops who fought at the Chosin Reservoir November 27th 1950, or the Bandits of Nicaragua in 1930. Semper Fidelis.
Old breed? New breed? There’s not a *** bit of difference so long as it’s the Marine breed. Chesty Puller, USMC
I just bought: 'Marine! The Life of Chesty Puller' by Burke Davis via
Redskins named a new coach today,Jay Gruden. Must have been quite a task for RGme, his father and Snyder. He talks big but his offensive numbers aren't even as good as the Shanahans who were fired and left town saying Griffin was an uncoachable *** Not gonna waste my time even talking about them anymore. Chesty Puller couldn't get this group to win as long as the three of these guys are around, and that's the lowdown
I just couldn't resist after discussing the Oath that service members take. I seen this years ago and different versions but on the lighter side of things to all my Sisters and Brothers in Arms US AIR FORCE OATH OF ENLISTMENT "I, (State your name), swear to sign away 4 years of my life to the UNITED STATES AIR FORCE because I know I couldn't hack it in the Army, because the Marines frighten me, and because I am afraid of water over waist-deep. I swear to sit behind a desk. I also swear not to do any form of real exercise, but promise to defend our bike-riding test as a valid form of exercise. I promise to walk around calling everyone by their first name because I find it amusing to annoy the other services. I will have a better quality of life than those around me and will, at all times, be sure to make them aware of that fact. After completion of "Basic Training", I will be a lean, mean, donut-eating, Lazy-Boy sitting, civilian-wearing-blue-clothes, Chair-borne Ranger. I will believe I am superior to all ...

My wife just Googled Chesty Puller, her screen is now cracked..
My daddy raised me to be a very different girl. Like seriously how many girls actually ENJOY watching war movies, not just the lovey dovey type war movies. learning about that kind of stuff. Thanks to him drilling me for 18 years. Making me watch full metal jacket at like 7! Hearing of stories of my family at war, chesty puller, George s Paton, Ira Hayes! But I wouldn't have it any other way. Glad to be my daddies girl!
Was just talking to a gentleman who, after finding out I'm a prior service Marine, asks "you know who Chesty Puller is? I met him, he was my friend's uncle."

In the News: After the recent cold spell that's been gripping nearly the entire U.S., the ghost of Chesty Puller appeared to Gen. Amos in a dream last night. The ghost of the former Lt Gen reportedly said to Amos: "Tell your marines to get their damned hands in their pockets! How are they supposed to fire a rifle with their damned fingers frozen off?! You don't get out much, do you?!" At news time, Amos was reportedly asking the Sgt Maj Barrett what this dream could possibly mean. ~ NINJA_PUNCH

On Saturday 1 March we will be visiting the National Museum of the Marine Corps at Quantico, VA. We last visited the museum in 2009. Several areas were under construction. An exhibit on WWI was being built; the “Chesty Puller” and “Reckless” statues were in the design process. These exhibits are now finished. But let me ask you a question; is it possible for any of us to “Belly up to the bar” at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia? Even for our most senior members this is an impossible quest. The original Tun Tavern is under I-95. But we can grab that Colonial fare at Tun Tavern at the NMMC. On the second deck is a recreation of this historic venue. I’ll have lunch there; hopefully we can bend our elbows and enjoy a good meal. The cost for this trip is $35 we will leave from White Oaks Shopping center at 0700. Just call me at (301) 268-1097 for reservations.

Goodnight Chesty Puller. Wherever ur at.
The first Heroes Dinner we ever did. Marine Corps AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. /PRBuzz/ February 4, 2011 -- Heroism is often the result of instinct, instilled in Marines from their creation by the intellectual branding of the heroic stories from the likes of Chesty Puller, Dan Daly and Jason Dunham. All of whom are etched in Marine Corps lore because of their unrivaled acts of courage and initiative. Carrying the Corps' tradition of excellence in 2010 were eight 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Marines, who went above and beyond with heroic acts of their own. 2nd MAW's commanding general, Maj. Gen. Jon M. Davis, hosted the Marines at his home aboard Cherry Point Jan. 18 for a home-cooked meal at the hands of celebrity chef Rick Tarantino. Tarantino arrived in town the day of the event and said he felt honored to be able to share the momentous occasion with the Marines. "This was a treat for me," explained Tarantino, who regularly appears on the Home Shopping Network. "Giving back and cooking for the men and w . ...

If you're having trouble remembering a part of Marine Corps history, one technique I've used with my students that works is taking something from your own life, like your birthday (or a friends) and applying it. For instance, if you happen to be struggling with the date that the Battle of Belleau Wood happened on (June 1-26 1918), and your birthday happens to be June 1st, there you go! You were born on the 1st day of the Battle of Belleau Wood. (Fun fact: LtGen. Chesty Puller turned 20 on the last day of that battle.) It doesn't even have to be about dates in history, like if you're having trouble remembering. which battle the Marines earned the nickname "Devil Dog" in, use what is called a "Mnemonic Device". "The Battle of Belleau Wood" is the correct answer, so they way I teach it is "Belleau WOOF!" Because they're Devil Dogs, get it? Find whatever works best for YOU though. Semper Fidelis -Jack
beautiful animal, my dads ex wife had an English bulldog named Chesty after the Marine Chesty Puller.
OK, my wife tells me the schools in Shenandoah County are closed tomorrow because it's going to be too cold... *** is that about? It's not like the school are not heated. Maybe there is something to all this talk about the wussification of America after all... I mean *** my grandparents walked barefoot through the snow up hill both ways for five miles to school year round... Granted, it was not quite as bad when I was a kid... We only lived two miles from the school and were able to wear socks, but it was still an uphill climb both ways... LOL :-) Regardless, I know kids have it a lot easier these days, but do we really need to close school because it's cold out? I wonder how Chesty Puller would have fared fighting his way out of the Chosin Reservoir in -35 degree weather in Korea surrounded by Chinese with kids that stayed home from school because it was cold? Anyway, it's a pretty cold winter so far compared to the recent past... I hope everyone gets their Obummercare verified... I'm betting the ma ...

Twelve degrees in the morning?. No sweat! If Chesty Puller can lead his frozen fighting Marines outta the Chosin Reservoir and Gen. McAuliffe can respond "Nuts" to a German demand of surrender during sub-zero temps.then I can get my boney *** outta the bed and get to work in the mornin'!!! Very thankful I ain't in the north east or the northern mid-west tonight! God's blessings to y'all and stay comfy! ;-)
In the words of Chesty Puller! A Marine with cold hands and empty warm pockets is a dam fool!

Hey Rob, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I received my chesty puller shoulder rig and I am very pleased. I have used it a couple times now and it seems to work very well.

The birth of a United States Marine.. The armed forces are unique in many ways, all are held to a high standard, but there is one very major difference in the service they serve in... This is not to be understood as a hit on the other services, just a statement on what it means to be a... Marine.. How you might ask.. When you go to the Army, Navy, and Air Force Recruiter after signing up and going to the service boot camp you go home and you tell your family and friends that you (joined) the.. Army and became a soldier , Navy and become a Sailor, or Air Force and become an Airman. But you can't go to Marine boot camp to (join) the Marine Corps.. to become a Marine.. That is because the process is not one of training.. No.. It is a rebirthing event.. You are totally stripped of your former heart & soul that your parents sent to Parris Island or San Diego.. After a very well organized period of instruction, no nonsense allowed, and every attempt made to ensure you understand... not what it takes to be a Mar ...
Let me get some thoughts and guesses. THIS IS A 100% TRUE STORY! I own a store that sells military and public safety uniforms and equipment along with other ooh-rah items like hats and shirts, etc. So one day about a month ago, this half drunk guy walks in my store with a box of junk he found in an abandoned storage rental unit he bid on (like ON the TV show Storage Wars). I could smell the alcohol him as soon as he walked in the door and thought I was about to throw him out for being stinky offending my olfactory glands. He then walked to me at the counter and asked if I wanted to buy anything in the box he found. I told him that I wasn't a pawn shop, but I might be interested in buying something if he had anything worth buying. - Then he pulls out a book. The book is titled MARINE --- "The life of Chesty Puller" by Burke Davis, published by Little, Brown in 1962 (see picture). At first glance it looked like on old library book, but when I opened the still fairly stiff cover, there before me is a handwri ...
I have been reading more and more about the time leading to WWII. I have made several parallels between then and now (Military History is a hobby). I have a couple hero's from that period that I wish were around today: ADM Raymond Ames Spruance, GEN Dwight D. Eisenhower, GEN Omar Bradley, GEN Beatle Smith and LtCol Chesty Puller, ADM Frank Fletcher. These men were leaders. They knew world affairs. They created policy, alliances and victory.

Bruce Hoffman spent four years in the United States Marine Corps. Two of those years were spent in Vietnam and Okinawa. And My Mother Danced with Chesty Puller is the story of a young Marine’s adventures during the Vietnam War, sometimes humorous, sometimes hair-raising.
My Grandfather survived Pearl. My Father in Law is a WW2 combat Marine that served on Guadalcanal and Iwo. Chesty Puller pinned his purple heart on him. He's 90 years old and could break that woman in half. I watched this last night and turned it off as soon as she said it. Maybe someone should knock her teeth out and see how she likes gumming Spaghetti O's.
Good night, Chesty Puller...wherever you are!
He was the marine every other marine wanted to be like--a soldier so legendary that they said he didn't need a landing craft to come to shore...he'd just walk on water. Chesty Puller so called because he had a chest like a battering ram was an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps during some of America's most historic conflicts. While it was never certain where the myth ended and the real man began one thing was...
Stupid Question. Chesty Puller retired as a Lt General... Why do I always think of him as a Colonel??
This is so cool I just can't keep it to myself, but it's a little long so feel free to scroll right past this. Just got back from a reunion of my dad's side of the family near Atlanta, Georgia. And since many of the family members on my moms side were only an hour away, I got to see both of my families. (I grew up in a divorced home with my family split down the middle, constant conflict for the past 14 years) There's always some drama at family reunions, and this was no exception. But there was something else too at this one. Each time I left one family to be with the other, they asked me to send baked goods and hugs to each other. Each family asked about the other and genuinely wanted to know how they were doing. Each wanted me to send their love and best wishes to the other. My dad's mom even gave me a gift to give to my mom back in Cali. There was tons of love and reconciliation and all that soppy stuff. And I can't even begin to tell you how amazing it felt to be in the middle of it all. What I've be ...

According to Rose Marie: We need another Chesty Puller or maybe an Admiral Nimitz: Really interesting, and I never knew this little bit of history: Tour boats ferry people out to the USS Arizona Memorial in Hawaii every thirty minutes. We just missed a ferry and had to wait thirty minutes. I went into a small gift shop to kill time. In the gift shop, I purchased a small book entitled, "Reflections on Pearl Harbor " by Admiral Chester Nimitz. Sunday, December 7, 1941 -- Admiral Chester Nimitz was attending a concert in Washington D.C. He was paged and told there was a phone call for him. When he answered the phone, it was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the phone. He told Admiral Nimitz that he (Nimitz) would now be the Commander of the Pacific Fleet. Admiral Nimitz flew to Hawaii to assume command of the Pacific Fleet. He landed at Pearl Harbor on Christmas Eve, 1941. There was such a spirit of despair, dejection and defeat--you would have thought the Japanese had already won the war. On Christmas ...

As Marines we always talk up about Chesty Puller, every mans Marine. Today I'd like to mention Louis B. Puller Chesty's Son. Soldier Wounded Warrior, Pulitzer Prize winning Author. His Demons got the better of Him in the end, his Legacy the book Fortunate Son, well with the read ! God Bless those Veterans who died long after the smoke cleared. God Bless those who are still struggling to make sense of senselessness. And God Bless America...
Happy birthday to the USMC. Perhaps it is fitting that On November 10, 1775, a committee of the Continental Congress met at Tun Tavern to draft a resolution founding the Marine Corps; in the ensuing years, the Corps has been tasked with an almost never ending succession of missions which one would need to be either drunken, or crazy to take on... and Marines are not crazy. Semper Fi! And good night Chesty Puller, wherever you are!
This Sunday Marines in remote parts of Afghanistan's Helmand province, aboard ships and elsewhere in the world will pause to celebrate the 238th birthday of the corps. The tradition has the youngest and oldest Marine cut a cake, preferably with a mameluke sword. But a k-bar knife will do as well. The Marines take their birthdays - and other traditions - seriously. From their earliest days in boot camp, young Marines are told about Belleau Wood, Iwo Jima and the Chosin Reservoir. Over the course of their career they learn to revere Chesty Puller, Dan Daly and others in the pantheon of Marine legends. Other services are defined by their missions and their equipment. The Marines too have a unique mission - it's an expeditionary force able to respond quickly. But what really sets it apart is something that is harder to describe but no less potent. It's sometimes described as an esprit de corps, but ultimately it's hard to define. It's an ancient code that holds that discipline, will and spirit can overcome nu ...

I have asked the question before but… if I Ask 10 Marines who the greatest Marine ever was, I'm guessing 7 out of the 10 will say Chesty Puller. Chesty Puller was a great Marine, but personally he doesn't even come close on my list. I was curious to know who you all think the greatest Marine ever was. Here is my top five: 1. John Lejeune - Made the Corps what it is today 2. Earl Pete Ellis - amphibious warfare prophet 3. Victor Krulak - amphibious warfare innovator 4. Dan Daly - The finest Marine NCO ever 5. Smedley Butler - Two Medals of Honor and a Brevet Medal Just curious to see what others think.
