The Bad Ass Files: SgtMaj. Daniel Joseph Daly, USMC

A War Hero: SgtMaj. Daniel Joseph Daly

 

Sergeant Major Daly is perhaps best remembered for a famous battle cry delivered during the desperate fighting in Belleau Wood in June 1918. Marines took a terrific pounding on the outskirts of Lucy le Bocage (“Lucy Birdcage” to the American Expeditionary Forces) at the fringe of Belleau Wood. They were outnumbered, outgunned, and pinned down. 1stSgt Daly ordered an attack. Leaping forward, he yelled to his tired men, “Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?”

It’s hard not to admire a man with ice-water in his veins, who craves adventure at every turn, who goes into battle not because he hates the man in front of him as so much he repsects and loves the man behind him.

Plus anybody with two pet lions named “Whiskey” and “Soda” is just BAD ASS!
