  • Looking for Book on a Highly Decorated Marine

    Hey guys and gals:

    Thought ya'll might know the answer to this question; I am searching high and low for a book by a guy who I thought was named Spranger, Pete.

    This Marine had lost an eye and seen some real combat and was in the infirmary for sometime recovering. He was (is) such a badass that he's the only Marine ever allowed to return to duty with his "disability".

    Who can name the gentleman and the book?

    The winner gets a big "thanks!" from me.....

    Who exactly are you looking for???

    Louis Roundtree, Smedley Butler, Chesty Puller (Good Night Chesty, wherever you are!), or just maybe you might be talking of Maj Gen Kenneth J. Houghton????.....He was shot in the head and had to wear an eye patch, while serving in Korea, he then led Marines in combat in Vietnam where he was wounded again.......is that who you are looking for????......or you looking for a particular devil dog????.....

      It may have been Houghton, but I thought that the guy was closer to my age 35-40 or so... Wish I could remember the guys name, but he was known for an eyepatch and keeping to a 24 hour on, 24 hour off schedule to increase his output. Spranger was his name, I thought....

      Hope this helps ring a bell. Thank you for your input!
