Somebody had to do it.
Here’s a permanent page to host any and all pictures of Chesty Puller with his hands in his pockets, out of regs, or generally looking awesome.

The Battle of Agua Carta was an engagement between the National Guard of Nicaragua and the rebels of Augusto César Sandino in 1932. It was fought near Mount Kilambe at the Agua Carta, a river in Sandino territory, as part of the American occupation of Nicaragua and a long lasting civil war.

Good night, Chesty, wherever you are. (Platoon 380. 7/31/72-10/30/72)
Hands in pockets is only out of regulation if you’re walking. Standing with hands in pockets is completely okay. Just don’t tell First Sergeant.
I think I have an authentic photo of Chesty and his entire graduating class from OTC in march 1919. It looks like Chesty seated on the front row 9th from the left. He was definately there during that time, he graduated June 1919. How could I have it authenticated?
