`Chesty’ Puller in his spot at Marine Corps museum

The National Museum of the Marine Corps saved a place of honor for the iconic Marine. His half-ton bronze sculpture, by Pennsylvania artist Terry Jones, was placed in the Semper Fidelis Memorial Park today on a hill next to the museum. Lt. Gen Lewis “Chesty” Puller, who died in 1971, was the most-decorated Marine who served for 37 years. See my story Wednesday for more on the art and the artist.
