BLOGGIN' BAD w/ Gunny G! ~ Hey, WHAT BECAME OF THAT "NO MORE PC" THING-AINO: AMERICANS IN NAME ONLY!!!!!! ~ AMERICA CAN NEVER BE GREAT BEFORE AND UNTIL THE STAIN, STIGMA, STENCH AND SHAME OF "THE PRINCE OF FOOLS" IS OFFICIALLY AND FINALLY UNDENIED AND... FLUSHED! (FUBO!)

“Evans F. Carlson got an early start in his career as a maverick. He

ran away from his home in Vermont at the age of 14 and two years later bluffed his way past the recruiters to enlist in the Army. When war broke out in 1917, he already had five years of service under his belt.

Like Merritt A. Edson, he soon won a commission, but arrived at the front too late to see combat. After the war he tried to make it as a salesman, but gave that up in 1922 and enlisted in the Marine Corps. In a few months he earned a commission again. Other than a failed attempt at flight school, his first several years as a Marine lieutenant were unremarkable.
