The quintessential, central casting, seen-him-in-everything, yelling in your face, drill sergeant guy. R Lee Ermey, dead at 74.

Me too. I’d thought if anybody would last forever, it’d be him.

He didn't last long in his signature role, though...

That role was a stellar achievement. I cringe with revulsion, pain and anger whenever it is on TV anywhere.

Only 74? I have to admit, I thought he was older than that.

Full Meal Jacket? Why is that?

I watch it, or parts of it, pretty often. Sorry for any discomfort I may be causing you.
