My phone has been blowing up with texts, his FMJ quotes, the last 15 minutes or so. Sucks. :down:

Shit- I read it was a hoax, and I read it's true (on Snopes).

God Speed Gunny!

You made me time travel and smile every time I watched you perform your timeless character.

"Do you realize I have not done a movie in five to six years? Why? Because I was totally blackballed by the... liberals in Hollywood," he alleged. "They can destroy you. They're hateful people [who] don't just not like you, they want to take away your livelihood... that's why I live up in the desert on a dirt road... I don't have to put up with their crap."

On the buckle of the Bible Belt.
I only met him one time, 3 or 4 years ago at The Smokey Mountain Knife Works in east TN. He was doing autographs on a Saturday.

I was in the store on Friday, and went back to the cabin to tell my wife that I had to go back to meet him.

I left before breakfast on Saturday morning, and got to the store before they opened...about 0730. The line went from the front door around half of the store.

I finally got to see him at 0930. The guy in front of me had his 10 year old son with him, and was carrying a sealed up box with an Ermey action figure in it. It was in full, class A, D.I. attire.

When the guy walked off with his son, I stepped up to Ermey, and as I shook his hand, I said "That was a really neat doll the guy had."

Ermey recoiled a bit and pulled himself up straight. "That's not a doll, that's an Action Figure!".


Now admit it, you read that last line in his voice, didn't you?


I stammered my apology, got an autographed photo and moved out smartly to the right...

I'll miss him, he was one of a kind.

Some folks just leave a mark, they have a true persona and amazing charisma. Great reading stories about him, thanks for sharing. Thought he was brilliant in the movie.

Rest easy Gunny! You definitely made your mark.

He's right about that. A lot of women kept their mouths shut about Weinstein for that exact reason.

he was also self deprecating, as seen in Saving Silverman.
