God bless you Mister Ermey and Semper Fi!!!
29 September 2003 | by dtucker86See all my reviews

R. Lee Ermey is one of the few service people who has accomplished as much out of the service as he did when he was in. This man is a hero in real life as well as playing one on the screen. I think he was HILARIOUS in Full Metal Jacket. Most people would watch him and say oh he's mean!but as an Army Sergeant I know where he's coming from. Mail Call is an absolute delight. You have fun watching and you learn about our military. How does a flamethrower work? Why were WWI soldiers called "doughboys"? How is a parachute packed? R. Lee takes on every question and answers them all in his own inimitable "in your face" style. This man delievers in spades and he never bores. He has a ball doing this show. I think he has the greatest job in the world. Our Army and the rest of the military is changing so rapidly that even us service guys have a hard time keeping up. Mister Ermey shows our kids that the military is a fine and honorable way of life. He was a juvenile deliquent who was ordered by a judge to join the military. He said the Marine Corps "put a screeching halt to my unconventional manner". Ermey served in Vietnam and was wounded and his Corps career ended after only 10 years. I was so happy the Marines made him an honorary Gunnery Sergeant recently. If ever someone earned their promotion! By the way, did you know that Lee once owned and operated his own whorehouse! I hope Mail Call runs for years, our kids need positive role mdoels like Mister Ermey. He is someone they can look up to. He exemplfies good old fashioned American ideals like patriotism, guts and selfless service. Mister Ermey we need more like you, keep chargin' gunny and as you would say SEMPER FI!
