RIP - he will be remembered by film buffs (and, Marines) forever

"Basically, a silver-haired judge, a kindly old judge, looked down at me and said, This is the second time I've seen you up here and it looks like we're going to have to do something about this. He gave me a choice. He said I could either go into the military - any branch I wanted to go to - or he was going to send me where the sun never shines. And I love sunshine, I don't know about you."

At the age of 17, R. Lee Ermey joined the United States Marine Corps and went through training in San Diego, California in 1961.


He served 14 months in Viet Nam

Yeah, read that today. 71 years old seems way to young to me. It was "familiar" watching him as a Drill Instructor in Full Metal Jacket. Guess he bought some of his real Drill Instructor experience to the movie it seems. Enjoyed him acting in movies, he is another "character" that will be missed. Semper Fi, Gunny!

I was at the Colorado State Marine Corps League convention. As always, conversation rolled back to boot camp. The feller sitting next to me said, I was a DI from 77-79, I was in boot camp in 78. He was my series Gunny. He had a couple of good stories about my Sr. DI too.


Another quality post.

First thing to say is ooorraah brothers. I was the 1st Marine in my family. My grand son just got back from Africa, he became a Marine 50 years after I did. I served on the USS Ranger Cva 61. Was at Camp Pendleton, on the Ranger in Tonkin Gulf, Viet Nam, Last duty station Sergeant of the guard, Marine barracks Portsmouth, Va. Look forward to visits with you jarheads.
