He's doubtless shouting cruel comments at angels now. "YOU CALL THOSE WINGS, GABRIEL?! ARE YOU A DAMN ARCHANGEL OR A PIGEON?! DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY, YOU FUCKING DODO!"

I remember watching Mail Call on the History Channel during summer breaks. I always enjoyed when he would eventually get around to destroying some watermelons. Good memories. Rest in peace.

still operates the same way. Platoon Commander, Platoon Sergeant, Sergent Instructor. Whereas, Recruit Training is Senior Drill Instructor and Drill Instructors. At Recruit training they are just referred to as Sir, to get Recruits used to interacting with Officers.

Honest to god....is there a better opening to a movie than Full Metal Jacket? Gunny Sergeant Hartman berating Marine recruits non stop is legendary

Noooooo. This man was a legend. Probably rolling over in his grave as we speak just due to the shear number of snowflakes on the planet.

RIP R. Lee.

You will be missed.

I just saw this on Facebook. He was more known for his great role in the movie Full Metal Jacket but he had so many memorable roles .  Loved him in The Frighteners , Fletch Lives and he was also in an obscure movie called Hexed . Small role but funny movie

Ermey started out as the technical advisor for FMJ. The guy originally cast as gunnery sergeant tired our after 30 minutes of yelling. Ermey stepped in and his energy never let up.  Ermey came up with 150 insults on his own.
