United States Marine Corps General. He was a Captain in the United States Army during World War, and, after resigning from the Army in 1919, enlisted in the Marine Corps as a Private in 1922. He was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in 1923 and served as an intelligence and operations officer before resigning as a Captain in 1939. Commissioned a Major in the Marine Reserves in 1941, he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in command of the Second Marine Raider Battalion, a commando force which became known as Carlson's Raiders. The Raiders, whose battle cry was "Gung Ho!", took part in successful attacks on Makin Island and Guadalcanal before being merged with three other battalions in 1943. He was badly wounded at Saipan in 1944 and retired with the rank of Brigadier General in 1946
