Daniel J. Daly
Sergeant Major Daniel J. Daly (1873-1937) was born in Glen Cove, New York. In 1899, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and was sent to the Asiatic Fleet.
 
One evening in August 1900, Daly and his captain defended a barricade in the city of Peking, China, during the Boxer Rebellion. As night fell, the captain left to get reinforcements. Daly held the position through relentless attacks until reinforcements arrived. For his brave conduct, Daly was awarded the Medal of Honor.
 
During the Mexican-American War in 1914, Daly saw action in Haiti. His patrol of 35 Marines was ambushed by approximately 400 rebels. Daly received the Medal of Honor for fighting off the rebel ambush against overwhelming odds.
 
Sgt. Daly is often remembered for his unflinching charge against German soldiers at the World War I battle of Belleau Wood in France. Outside the village of Lucy le Bocage, outnumbered, outgunned, and pinned down, Daly ordered an attack, leading his men. “Do you want to live forever?” he yelled. He and his small group of Marines surged forward and captured the town.
 
Major General John A. Lejeune, former Commandant of the Marine Corps, described Sergeant Major Daniel Daly as the “outstanding Marine of all time.”
