Was the previous portrayal of Puller by his fellow men, enough for you? If not, I have other claims too. It was claimed that his chest was a result of heavy commanding and shouting which he had to do while leading the troops. They said, “We don’t need No frontline communications”. “Chesty yells commands up and down the line you can hear him for miles”.
After the Banana War was over, Puller raised his rank in the US military.
