    Dang it. Watched his shows regularly, always figured he had quite a ways to go yet.

    You just never know.

          I went to see the movie "Full Metal Jacket" with a guy who worked for me, who was an Air Force veteran. Me, not knowing who Ermey was, as soon as he opened his mouth, for the very first lines of dialogue, I turned to my buddy and said,
          "That guy is a REAL Marine Corps Drill Instructor."
          No one can fake that. And that portrayal of Marine Corps Boot Camp at Parris Island, South Carolina, was the closest and most real version of Parris Island in the 1960's, I have ever seen depicted in film.
          I was there from August to November 1964 as a recruit, and to this day, I rarely (if at all) tell stories of Boot Camp there, since I would guess, everybody would think I was 'bull$h!tting'. Believe me, Amnesty International would have closed it down due to the inhumane methods of training (AKA Torture).

          Many seniors die of "complications of pneumonia". As I am only a couple of years younger than Ermey, I guess I have to worry, every time I get a chest cold !!

          I enjoyed the Gunny's shows and movies. It's a shame that he states he was 'black-balled' due to his political ways, and membership in the NRA.
          That just proves that 'Free Speech' is DEAD for a conservative, but left wing liberal pukes can say any f'ing thing !!
