The original Chuck
was the most badass man alive matched only by his spiritual clone, Richard Marcinko. Chesty
won, among dozens of other
awards, 5 Navy Crosses but the story doesn't end there. The following statements are true:
fought off an entire North Korean tank battalion single-handedly with
only an M1911. He destroyed
8 tanks with
its 7 bullets before
taking out the rest with
his bare hands.
Congress had a plan to win the Vietnam War by sending Chesty
Puller alone to conquer the country, but abandoned this course of action when they determined him to be a force
of nature more powerful than large-scale nuclear weapons.
The nearly-impenetrable armor
on modern tanks is synthesized
's DNA mixed with
aluminum. They had to mix it because pure Chesty armor
was deemed illegal under the Geneva Convention because it would
an arms race the world has never seen before
Burwell Puller, the quintessential Marine.
Good night Chesty! Wherever you are!
