Get Some!

We had one of the most recognizable voices on base last weekend to sign autographs.  The great R. Lee Ermey, most well known as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from the Stanley Kubrick Film Full Metal Jacket was there for the USMC’s Toys for Tots program.  Legend has it that Mr. Ermey was originally not a cast member, but only there as an advisor to the movie and was put into the spot after the original person cast was not “cuttin the mustard” as my grandpa would say.  I asked him if this was true and he stated it was always his intention to land a part in the movie.  Well, it looks like it worked!
