Just read that R. Lee Ermey died. What a loss to the shooting community. I will miss him a lot. He was one of a kind.

If you can't kill it with a 30-06 you ain't in North America.

He was heavily involved with troop morale, he did several morale trips to the AOR to visit with them/us. Didn't matter if you were a Marine, Sailor, Soldier, Airman or Coastie he treated us all with equal respect. He was a man that earned respect, not one that expected it.

God Speed and Semper Fidelis Gunny, you've done your duty with Honor and Dignity!

When he was at the Glock booth during SHOT show, he always had a smile and never rushed those wanting to talk with him, even tho the line to see him seemed a mile long.

Semper Fi
He was in the Boys of Company C , Full Metal jacket, and The siege of Fire Base Gloria-- all great USMC movies made better by his presence in them. He will be kicking ass and taking names at heaven's gate.

He came to Albuquerque to hand out awards tot he winners of the National Police competitions held each year here. You could not find a more gracious and approachable person to meet.
We will not see his kind again. He will be missed.
