Clarksville Now

If you heard a commanding military voice bark from a cartoon character, odds are it was Golden Globe-nominated actor R. Lee Ermey, who died Sunday morning from complications of pneumonia. After enrolling in the U.S. Marine Corps at the age of 17, Ermey served 11 years active duty, rising to the rank of staff NCO. A technical adviser on Full Metal Jacket, Ermey would wind up in the final film because he simply embodied the spirit Kubrick wanted his savage drill instructor to represent. He was also a drill instructor for the Marines. Semper Fi, Gunny. Good luck, "Rogin has written in reference to slogan of Marine Corps, in which Ermelo served 1961 to 1971, when he was discharged for health reasons".

Besides "Full Metal Jacket", Ermey also starred in other films about the Vietnam War, such as "Apocalypse Now" and "The Boys in Company C." .

He raked in more than 60 credits in film and television across his long career in the industry, often playing authority figures in everything from Se7en to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake.

"Basically, a silver-haired judge, a kindly old judge, looked down at me and said, This is the second time I've seen you up here and it looks like we're going to have to do something about this".

Police employed stun grenades against protesters, with 46 people-including Pashinyan- reported to have been hospitalized. Serzh Sargsyan , who held the office for almost a decade, had promised he wouldn't seek the key job of prime minister.

Mr. Ermey also hosted two programs on the History Channel including "Mail Call" where he answered questions about the military and "Lock N' Load" which featured various types of weapons. Unlike his hard-edged characters, Rogin wrote, "The real R. Lee Ermey was a family man, and a kind and gentle soul". Various voices on shows like The Simpsons, Kung Fu Panda, SpongeBob, Family Guy, and Kim Possible.

"It is a awful loss that nobody was prepared for", Rogin added. Hartman is the most memorable character in that film, and his incredible rants and emasculating mockery of the recruits is at the same time laugh out loud amusing and hypnotizingly frightening.

He famously voiced for three parts of Toy Story and got a lot of acclaim for for Full Metal jacket. he is survived by his wife of 43 years and four children.
