    Man I just watched full.metal jacket with my kids last weekend. Brought back great memories from high school days when we watched this over and over.

    RIP

    There was a very long line to say hi and get the autograph at the NRA convention a few years back. He was relatively young too. RIP, an icon for sure.

    Rumor is he was an advisor at the set of Full Metal Jacket and they were auditioning actors for that part, and he finally went off on one to show them how it was done. At that point he was hired for the job.

    He was a DI at MCRD San Diego in 66 thru 68. Watched the interview of him talking about the movie and Far Beyond Driven is correct. He took the cast of the platoon and put them on the yellow footprints by the receiving barracks, put his old DI Smokey Bear hat and utilities on and did a number on the cast like DI's did. Made videos of it, gave it to the producer and was given the part. Claimed he re-wrote the entire GySgt part from ground up.
