Dan Daly joined the Marine Corps in 1899 to fight in the Spanish-American War. Unfortunately for him, the war ended before he saw any action. Little did he know at the time that his exploits and adventures, while in the Corps, would be remembered for generations to come. Dan traveled around the globe. He fought in several wars and participated in countless invasions, saving American lives and prosperity. During his time in the Corps, Daly fought in the Philippine-American War, the Boxer Rebellion, the Banana Wars, including Cuba, Mexico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, before going to World War One. Along the way he was one of only two Marines to earn the Medal of Honor twice, for two separate actions, and he would be recommended for the medal on at least two other occasions. He truly is the most outstanding marine of all time.
