Post subject:  RIP R. Lee Ermey

R. Lee Ermey, the legendary drill-sergeant-turned-actor, has died.

Ermey was an actual drill sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. and a Vietnam veteran, but what he will be most remembered for is undoubtedly his single, unforgettable role in Stanley Kubrick's war epic, Full Metal Jacket. There's a very interesting article about Ermey's role in that movie; it's too long to quote here, but well worth reading.
