3. R. Lee Ermey as a young Marine:



I think my older boy watched every single episode of Mail Call ever made.

Godspeed, sir.

6. Sad

I met him at an NRA annual meeting private reception a few years ago. Hell of a nice guy and really enjoyed talking with him. We were at a table and he was on one side of me and Ollie North (who grew up with me in Columbia County, NY) on the other.

RIP, Gunny.

9. A very sad day for all of us......

Sgt. Ermey was a Drill Instructor (good God.. never, ever refer to them as a "D.I.") at MCRD San Diego when I was an 0331 outside of DaNang at Marble Mountain.

My one wish was that I could have served one day in combat with the Gunny.... that would have been the one day I would have felt safe in 'Nam .......

God Bless you, Gunny... I really look forward to meeting up with you at the big slop chute in the sky....
