Lt. Gen. Lewis “Chesty” Puller was quite a man and quite a Marine.
Probably the most quotable Marine ever – he’s known for his sayings alsost as much has his battlefield action.
17 of his classics are below via WE ARE MIGHTY:
2. “Don’t forget that you’re First Marines! Not all the Communists in hell can overrun you!”
3. “You don’t hurt ’em if you don’t hit ’em.”
5. “Hit hard, hit fast, hit often.”
(#6 said while at a flamethrower demonstration)
6. “Where the Hell do you put the bayonet?”
(#8 said while surrounded by the enemy)
8. “Great. Now we can shoot at those bastards from every direction.”
