One of the most decorated marines of all time is one Chesty Puller, his exploits are so legendary that other marines still, to this day, entertain other marines with hyperbolic stories about his manliness and general awesomeness. He is literally the Chuck Norris of the military world.
If you have any doubts in your mind that such a person existed, or that the above is exaggerated in anyway. Upon seeing a flamethrower for the first time, Puller took one look at it and asked where you attached the bayonet. Seconds later that room collapsed as no room built could contain such an amount of coolness.
