R. Lee Ermey was a very cool guy IMO. Of course he is well known for his roles in movies such as Full Metal Jacket's Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, but he also served our country in the Marine Corps. I watch a lot of firearms related videos on YouTube and he was on many different channels, so it's cool seeing him help out the small guys. He passed away at the age of 74.

    I remember reading that he wasn't an actor but the guy hired to teach the actor how to act like a drill Sargent. After a string of insults he got hired as the actor and won the academy award for his role.

    Edit: I was wrong he didn’t win the academy award bu the movie itself did because of his role. He was just nominated for a golden globe.

    I always liked his roles in movies and the commercials I saw him in.  Whenever I'd see him in those "drill sgt" roles, it always brought back memories of my Marine Corps boot camp days...

    The brilliance of the director Stanley Kubrick.

    I read how they did the scene. Stanley Kubric brought this guy in and said "act". No script. Not to take away from Kubric's brilliance, but the opening sequence is great 90% thanks to Lee Ermey.

    End of an era. Like many future US Marines I watched his iconic roll prior to enlisting. The real DI experience is much much worse.
