“The Law of Attraction” states, if you really desire something from your heart, the whole universe will conspire to give it to you. Something like that happened with Puller. He didn’t give up and he kept trying. He was finally enlisted in Virginia military academy in 1917. The hard work and endless efforts paid off.
But the training of this academy was within the US border which wasn’t enough for Puller. He wasn’t happy to come across the fact that he won’t be able to join the first world war even after his hard attempts. He really wanted to serve his country and fight its enemies.
