    As an ex-Bubble Head, not a Jar-Head, I think it would be a great idea. Especially if a good part of the proceeds went to a wounded Marine fund, and not just a gimmick to take advantage of his name.

    All I can say is, we better pray he’s not pulling sentry duty at the Pearly Gates when it’s our time to go. I don’t think I’m still capable of dropping and doing 20.

    Great Idea...it could come with a DVD of all the great commercials Gunny made for Glock...several are classics!

    RIP Gunny..."All the great men are dying and I don't feel so well myself"

    You can put me down for one of those if Glock ever makes one.

    He was a great friend to the National Police Shooting Championships. He will be, most certainly missed. I really enjoyed listening to him, as the Keynote Speaker at the Nationals awards banquet in 2008. I count my life richer for it.

    IMG_1755.jpg Sgt. (E-5) R. Lee Ermey was one of my (Third Battalion, Platoon 3029) drill instructors at MCRD San Diego, in 1966. He was a model DI, the kind of Marine that young men wanted to emulate. Firm (to say the least) but fair, he was FEARED, ADMIRED and RESPECTED by recruits. He took his responsibility as a DI very seriously and gave his absolute best effort to prepare young men for war.

    When I saw the movie Full Metal Jacket, I swear that I thought I was 17 and back in boot camp again. He didn't have to act to be Sgt. Hartman, he just portrayed himself over the two years of his life as a DI.

    When I came out of the field in 1968 and was processing to leave the hell hole referred to as RVN, I ran into him in Da Nang, as he had just recently arrived in country for a tour of duty. We drank a beer together and discussed PLT. 3029. I'm sure he didn't remember me, as I was just another recruit maggot in a 78 man platoon, but he treated me like an old friend.

    Over the past 50 years, our paths crossed numerous times. I would visit with him at the Glock booth that he manned at the annual conventions of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and also see him at NRA conventions.

    The last time I saw him was at the IACP convention in San Diego in 2012. I told him that it wasn't fair that I was being haunted by my DI 46 years after graduating from boot camp. He chuckled and said that several recruits he had encountered over the years had told him the same thing.

    I owe him a debt of gratitude. He helped mold and transform me and lots of other kids into men and Marines, and I feel a part of me died along with him on April 15, 2018.

    I'm sure he is up in the big boot camp in the sky, calling perfect cadence during the conduct of close order drill.

    Semper Fi and RIP, Gunny. We are all diminished by your passing.
