Death of a Marine
#1
R. Lee Ermey, a former marine turned Hollywood actor known for hardheaded military roles like Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket” has died at 74, his manager said. 

Past being an iconic actor and serving in Viet Nam he also was a very outspoken proponent for Vets. He worked with many organizations that supported Vets and their rights. A quiet-spoken man in person and a board member on the NRA (not to get too political) he was blackballed by Hollywood for some of his comments about then President Barack Obama. Despite the censor costing him money, as acting was his living, he never wavered from his position or convictions. 

RIP Gunny, your tour is over. We owe you a debt we can't repay for your service in-country and the huge amount of work and time you put in after you had a platform to yell from. Not that you needed it!

Sorry Yes in hindsight I see my FOREPAW

A note OUR Gunny is a man of his word. He has promised a wee drop of Scotish elixir and a shared cigar before he shuffles off this challenge called life. We haven't yet enjoyed that drink and smoke so he will be around until he does so. Marines do nothing without orders and he hasn't received the order to rest yet!!!!

Much Love Gunny, and sorry to all for the scare.

I never thought about when I posted as I KNOW we will share that drink one day. Call it a feeling, call it something more existential. To me, it is a fact.

RIP Ermey. I know you met up with Alan Sabrosky before departure. I saw your photos.

AsMemNRA hunted down Ermey's NRA poster.
