Good post, Joe. Thank you.
John Wayne said it well in 'Sands of Iwo Jima', "Courage is beidng scared to death, and saddling up anyway".
That being said, when it comes to a soldiers soldier and fighting General, none will ever surpass Chesty Puller. He personally engaged in over 120 close fire fights.
Find and read a copy of Chesty's book "MARINE".

Did you know that Patton was Chesty's cousin?
