    Was nicknamed "Brute" as a 5'4'' 120lb plebe at Annapolis and embraced the nickname with passion, like everything else he did in life. General Krulak was the most influential Marine of his generation and served in WWII, winning the Navy Cross at the battle of Choiseul Island, as well as Korea, and Vietnam. He would have been named Commandant has he not been such a critic of how LBJ was managing the Vietnam War.  He is the author of the classic "First to Fight" a history of his beloved Marines.
