Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

A Quote To Remember

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/11/07


From Military Quotes.com:

When an Army captain asked him for the direction of the line of retreat,
Col Puller called his Tank Commander, gave them the Army position, and ordered:
“If they start to pull back from that line, even one foot, I want you to open fire on them.”
Turning to the captain, he replied “Does that answer your question?
We’re here to fight.” At Koto-ri in Korea
– Chesty Puller at Koto-ri in Korea
(From “Marine: The Life of Chesty Puller” by Burke Davis)
