In the years prior to Pearl Harbor, Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller served in multiple assignments abroad, including marine combat tours in Haiti and Nicaragua; in the United States, he completed military studies at the Virginia Military Institute, in the officer candidate program, and at the U.S. Army Infantry School. Puller's at times controversial leadership style, most evident during World War II and the Korean War, developed over several decades of military service and education. The essence of Puller's dynamic leadership was leading by example from the front, developing a personal connection with his subordinates, and ensuring the welfare of his men. Such behavior established strong bonds and unwavering loyalty.
