R. Lee

He was a Staff Sgt when he got out, was never a Gunny but hey, what sells sells ya know. Do I watch Mail Call, yes, do I luv it, yes, does he rip butt, yes. I guess they feel makin him a Gunny makes it more believable or sumfin. For me, I luv watchin him, he is funny and likes to have fun. Yeah, I know, its sad that the Gunny was never a Gunny, but heck he is in our hearts. Like I told that civvie, you have god, we have R. Lee.

Correct me if I'm wrong..

but I do remember Lee getting his Gunny strips after he got out of the Corps. Not sure if he was in the reserves or not.

OK here's the scoop...

On May 17, 2002 he received an honorary promotion to Gunnery Sergeant (E-7) by Commander of Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Forces (SHAEF) United States Marine Corps General James L. Jones, becoming the first ex-military member in the history of the United States Marine Corps to be promoted. He received the stripes at a ceremony at MCRDSD on May 5th, 2002 from Major Gen. Jan Huly and Sergeant Maj. Bruce A. Mackamul pin Gunnery Sergeant on R. Lee Ermey.

gunny Ermey

Thanks for the info Cpl Miller. Saw the post over at togetherweserved.com as well. Looks like you got a thumbs up from Major Prater. This should be a plus for this website. Got to get all those Marines over at TWS to post their yearbooks. Semer Fi Gary

ALL pictures that were sent in for entry into the boot camp database HAVE been entered. Although the pictures (emails) your daughter sent in were numbered from 1 - 10 there were two emails with dupilcate platoon pictures.

Accounting for our difference in time zones you will find that platoon 2020 is entered into the database, it was also added to your D.I. section this morning. We can only enter what pictures or information are sent in. We also keep records (backups) of all emails sent to use in regards to database entry which we are more than happy to send you for varification.

I know as a former Drill Instructor you DEMAND fast turn around on your requests and we do the best we can to keep abreast of ALL request for database entries...enough said Marine


Carry On Marines!!

You owe me NO

apology Marine, shit happens.

From our (YFP) standpoint it's important for everyone to know that we take EVERY request for data entry with the utmost importance. It's one reason we work so hard with each and every request to make sure your information is entered into our database correctly.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but the operative word is 'honorary'. He is still a SSgt. It's like making a non-Marine an 'Honorary Marine', he/she is still not a Marine.
