Take a look back at an all-American hero, the most decorated Marine in American history. From the state of Virginia, Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller is one of only two United States servicemen to be awarded five Navy Crosses and one Army Distinguished Service Cross.

He was an all-American hero who served in conflicts around the world including the Pacific in World War II and the Korean War in the 1950s. He was a Marine, and even although he died almost 50 years ago, he is still a legend within the ranks of that elite U.S. military outfit.
