Gomer Pyle was a sweet but not-too-smart U.S. Marine from Mayberry, North Carolina who was stationed at Camp Henderson near Los Angeles, California. Gomer's innocence, naivete, and low-key demeanor often got him into trouble, most frequently at the hands of his loud-mouthed superior, Sergeant Carter. Duke, Frankie, Lester, and Larry were some of Gomer's pals and fellow enlisted men at Camp Henderson, and Lou Anne Poovie was his sometime girlfriend.Written by

Gomer often refers to the Marine Corps as "Corpse". Corps is actually pronounced to sound like "core". See more »
When Gomer, Sgt. Carter, and the majority of the other Marines are wearing their green fatigues, the shirts have "V"-shaped pocket flaps over the buttons and have the Marine Corps emblem and USMC on the left pocket But Slater always wears a fatigue shirt with square pocket flaps, exposed buttons, and no emblem on the left pocket, indicating that his fatigue is from another service branch. Sometimes "extras" are seen wearing the same top. See more »
i'm in the service also and the last person was wrong on his commits. after seeing the stuff i've seen in the navy and marine corp (no offence to the marines ) i would totally believe that show the other person was talking about even sergant bilko is more believeable now. if you know anything about gomer pyle they made the show funny but it did have some real points to it the did not intend to make fun of the marines they intended to have fun with the marines.i wish this show would of lasted well into the 70's and possible the 80's 4 star in my book.
