    Had a chance to meet and shake his hand at a meet and greet in Baltimore several years ago. Hell of a nice dude, was cracking jokes and shit talking just as you would expect.

    I got to meet him at a Radio event in San Diego about 20 years ago. The Radio Station was collecting donations for Toys for Tots and needed volunteers to answer the phones. After my shift they asked me to hang out. Gunny was on the radio shortly after and then we got to have a beer together. It was pretty cool.

    RIP Gunny

    R. Lee Ermey, legendary Marine and one of the most memorable actors from the movie “Full Metal Jacket,” died Sunday.

    Ermey passed away from complications of pneumonia, Bill Rogin, Ermey’s long-time manager, said in a statement on Twitter.

    “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,“ Rogin wrote.

    In a statement to Marine Corps Times, Rogin added that nobody was prepared for the “terrible loss” of Ermey.

    “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,” Rogin said. “He has also contributed many iconic and indelible characters on film that will live on forever.”
