    I was and will always be a HUGE fan of the late Gunnery Sgt, R. Lee Ermey. The man was the real deal and an awesome mascot for the USMC. “You Will not laugh! You Will Not Cry! You will learn by the numbers, I WILL TEACH YOU!” (From Full Metal Jacket)I urge all my readers to Check out “Gunny Time” on the Outdoor Channel (Channel 606 on Direct TV), not only is it entertaining but is is very informative as well.
