So, apparently Chesty's House is for sale. I had the opportunity to do the Chesty Puller 10k down here a last month. Beautiful area. Gorgeous House (from the outside).

Thought I would share, because heck, it's cool.

Only if the walls could speak, as the last thing I would is the ghost of Chesty calling me a pussy.

My downstairs neighbor was in his RGT in Korea. Speaks highly of Chesty. Said he loved his men.

That's what my uncle said When he got the word that his little brother ( my dad ) was with him in Korea. He sent a letter to my dad telling him to listen and do everything Chesty tells him , to the letter , and that he won't worry about his kid brother , lol only worry my uncle said he had , was the fact my dad didn't listen to his mom very well. Lol
But my father made it home alive and in good order , unfortunately he was murdered in Newman ca. On sept 1st 1957
I was 3 1/2

Sgt Tom Vaughn One hell of a family history. Sorry about your father, no words for that.

Semper Fidelis.

And to think, he likely wouldn't survive in today's military climate.

$395,000 I wish I lived near there. I wouldn't want to move up to Virginia but would love a chance to buy the house. It might drive my wife nuts that I would have to say "good night Chesty Puller, wherever you are, you fighting son of a bleep" every night when I hit the rack.

If I had half a million lying around, I'd buy it myself.

1stSgt (Join to see) Got to have the money first. Alas, I am lacking the funds. Perhaps we can start a gofundme! I'll happily turn it into a museum with RP's help.

1stSgt (Join to see) - That's actually part of the plan. We plan to renovate the house to include a Chesty memorial, an attractive promotion ceremony or wedding spot (the property is over 3 acres), and of course the house's new primary function, housing for vets in crisis.
