Saying a prayer for his family. Another great one gone
Met him while I was stationed in Okinawa, circa 2007. As nice a guy as you could imagine. (Didn't hurt I was a younger Marine too.) He was the guest of honor at my younger brother's Ball in northern Okinawa that year. (Don't recall which base my brother was on at the moment.) Gunny was doing his Mail Call show and was signing his book at the PX on Camp Foster, I still have the book with the autograph. Semper Fidelis Gunnery Sergeant.
Fun fact: He was actually medically retired as a SSgt but his fame as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman eventually had the Commandant, Gen Jones, promote him to Gunnery Sergeant.
Was just watching some lock n' load reruns last week. Great guy and great personality. RIP Gunny
I know a lot of people that worked with him on Mail Call and other History Channel shows. Never a bad thing to say about him. RIP Gunny.
Mail Call was one of my favorites.
His opening scene in Full Metal Jacket will live forever.
The VFW lost a great friend. I saw and talked to him at several Conventions, great guy. Wife got a picture with him.
Where he got his start in acting. Glad that the actor couldn't do a drill sergeant as well as Ermey. "Choke yourself!"
