    RIP "Gunny" R. Lee Ermey

    Just found out "Gunny" (Gunnery Sergeant of the United States Marine Corps) R. Lee Ermey passed away yesterday morning. You may remember him as the ferocious and feared drill sergeant in "Full Metal Jacket". Or, on "Mail Call".

    I had the honor of meeting him a few years ago. When he found out I was a retired US Air Force Master Sergeant..........

    SUPER nice guy in real life! Ermey, a former drill instructor, served from 1961 to 1972. He left the Marine Corps as a staff sergeant, and later received an honorary promotion to gunnery sergeant from then-Commandant Gen. James Jones in 2002.
