MARINES & FRIENDS OF  “CHESTY”

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

LIEUTENANT GENERAL

LEWIS B. “CHESTY” PULLER

The drawing you see below is of a statue we are going to have built, and which will be erected on the grounds of the National Marine Corps Museum at Quantico. It will be the first ever done to honor one of the greatest Marines ever to wear our uniform, LtGen Lewis B. “Chesty” Puller. This is a call to arms to all who have ever said the immortal words: "Good night Chesty, wherever you are”. Let your fellow Marines, friends, relatives, and all others know of this worthwhile endeavor. All of the people involved in this project are former Marines including the sculptor.

PROGRESS REPORT:

We appreciate all of you who have donated toward the building of the "Chesty" Statue. We have a ways to go to reach our goal of $260,000 but we are sure that all who are interested will bring this to a reality. We have concluded that if every Marine, past or present, plus all other interested persons gave at least $5.00 we could start building the statue tomorrow. This is one battle that needs to be won. Semper Fi.

USS ARIZONA Marine Remembrance At Pearl Harbor

UPDATE:    We saved the Marine Corps Rememberance Memorial in Pearl Harbor From The National Park Service.

UPDATE:   A couple of years ago, I was the Operations Officer for the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, on the waterfront between the USS ARIZONA and the USS BOWFIN. The Commandant of the Marine Corps was the featured speaker at the dedication of the USS ARIZONA Marine Remembrance, 10 November 2006. The National Park Service, which administers the USS ARIZONA Memorial is renovating all of Halawa Landing, the site of the Marine Remembrance. The Regional Director of the Natl Park Service Western Region, Jon Jarvis, stated on the local TV news that the Marine Remembrance would be removed. I challenged him on that statement and convinced him that would not happen without a fight. I passed the word to (disabled CAP Marine vet) Jack Cunningham (Americans Working Together), who in turn asked his readership to email Jarvis that the entire USMC would make every effort to have him relieved of his duties if he moved that monument. I was copied on many of the emails to him from Marines, their friends and their families that it nearly fried my computer. And...it worked. In order to save his job, Jarvis backed down. The Remembrance now belongs to the USMC and has its' rightful place in direct view of the USS ARIZONA.

Now, Jack Cunningham can use our help himself, as he fights for his due process against a corrupt law firm and state officials who are protecting them.
 
 

A state Supreme Court attorney ethics Vice-Chairman Robert Correale misuses his high level government and court office to Cover-Up and block ethics violations and legal malpractice charges against his own law firm, Maynard & Truland.  After eight years, the Cover-Up leads all the way up to the Governor's Office, the Attorney General's Office, the state's Supreme Court and Superior Court.

Disabled Vietnam vet, Jack Cunningham's ethic complaints start with Robert Correale's and his law firm's gross negligence, over-charging per hour, false billing, lack of communications, coming to court unprepared and open perjury to the New Jersey Supreme Court and Superior Court systems.   (Evidence are Maynard & Truland's own contact, invoices, court-filed letters, court-filed documents and court-filed sworn statements, NJ Supreme Court attorney certifications, etc.)
 
Thanks to some dedicated, honest State Legislators, Jack Cunningham is no longer in this battle alone.   Please read the below letters. 
 
It's going to another level.  It's proof that in America, the little guy can win, if he or she does not give up...
