We have lost a great patriot... RIP Gunny... Your watch is over, We will take it from here... Changing of the guard, Saint Peter you are relieved... God's speed Gunny, you will be missed...

I was honored to have met R. Lee Ermey (Gunny) when I was In the Navy stationed on the USS Ranger CV-61, he was doing a taping of his show and he was exactly what you saw on his shows, never a question as to where he was at and a warm personable man who loved his country 24/7.

Statement from R. Lee Ermey's longtime manager, Bill Rogin:
.
It is with deep sadness that I regret to inform you all that R. Lee Ermey ("The Gunny") passed away this morning from complications of pneumonia. He will be greatly missed by all of us. It is a terrible loss that nobody was prepared for. He has meant so much to so many people. And, it is extremely difficult to truly quantify all of the great things this man has selflessly done for, and on behalf of, our many men and women in uniform. He has also contributed many iconic and indelible characters on film that will live on forever. Gunnery Sergeant Hartman of Full Metal Jacket fame was a hard and principled man. The real R. Lee Ermey was a family man, and a kind and gentle soul. He was generous to everyone around him. And, he especially cared deeply for others in need.
.
There is a quote made famous in Full Metal Jacket. It's actually the Riflemen's Creed. "This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine."
.
There are many Gunny's, but this one was OURS. And, we will honor his memory with hope and kindness. Please support your men and women in uniform. That's what he wanted most of all.
.
Semper Fi, Gunny. Godspeed.
