The U.S Marine Corps is not in the practice of sending their oldest members into harm's way - they aren't now, and they weren't in 1942. But when they imparted this information to Gunnery Sergeant Lou Diamond (1890 - 1951), he would have none of it - the mere idea that the world was to be at war, and he would be excluded: not going to happe.

"In mid-November last year the tension of the Gaudalcanal campaign showed signs of wearing on Lou. He was ordered to New Zealand for hospital care... Lou had been there only two days when the hospital superintendent said, 'I thought I was head of this hospital until Diamond got here. Now I'm not sure.'"

His hostile reaction to the article can be read at the bottom of the scroll...

Gunny Sergeant Diamond also insisted that he have his own Military Wiki page.
