The Old Corps
Sergeant Major Dan Daly was one of two US Marines to receive the Medal of Honor twice. It would have been a third time, but it was stopped due to it being deemed unacceptable for one man to receive the Medal of Honor three times.
Daly earned his first Medal of Honor after he single-handedly defended the US Embassy during the Boxer Rebellion. One night while completely alone, he manned a squad machine gun to hold off a force of invading Boxers. The next morning Daly was found alive with 200 enemy combatants dead around him.
His second Medal of Honor was given to him during the occupation of Haiti. His group of about 40 Marines was ambushed by 400 Haitian rebels. While pushing the enemy back so they could set up a defensive position, the Marines lost one of their machine guns in a river. That night, Dan Daly left his position and dove into the river to retrieve the lost machine gun. Once the gun was up and operational the Marines were able to successfully put down the Haitians that ambushed them.
The third almost Medal of Honor came during the famous battle of Belleau Wood. The Marines laid flat under German gunfire, waiting for the moment when they could advance into the woods. Their only concealment was a wheat field which was only about waist high. The second there was a break in the enemy fire, Dan Daly jumped up, exposed himself to the enemy fire, and personally led the charge screaming, “Come on, you sons of bitches. Do you want to live forever?”
