Chesty Puller: The Marine's Marine
Lieutenant General Chesty Puller was an enlisted man, who rose through the ranks in his service to America from 1917 into the 1960s. Known as the Marine’s Marine, Chesty Puller got his nickname from his barrel chest. The myth was that the original had been shot away and the new one was a steel plate. In battles from Guadalcanal to the Chosin Reservoir, he lived up to his bullet-proof reputation, earning medals that required every inch of his uniform to display. Archival film footage and photographs, and the personal remembrances of soldiers, friends, and family, bring to life the inspiring story of the most decorated Marine in history.
