You can call all the real heroes of American history fake all day but there is a reason we revere them. Not very many officers in history are actually considered all that often by the guys who actually go through the ****. Chesty is THE exception because he was everything a Marine should be, and somehow he was still an officer. Rank is a worthless way to judge a man because that would mean that the backstabbing, blowhard pig Schwarzkopf (or the spineless prettyboy, Wesley Clark, for that matter) is worth something besides what he wrote in that love letter to himself It Doesn't Take a Hero. The Army's 'Chesty,' David Hackworth, died a LtCol without his medals being considered as far as they should have (I'd like to know which AC loving pogue denied him), but he was still one of the best Soldiers in our history. Even with the massive de-balling that was inflicted on our whole military, the influence of Warrior-Leaders like Puller, both Smiths, and even Vandegrift are what keeps the Marine Corps as the only instrument we can rely on to win in any situation.
