God rest your soul SSGT Ermey Those of us who entered the Military in the 60's thru the 70's, no matter the branch of service probably encountered a DI along the Lines of R Lee Ermey. I don't think he was "Acting" at all.

But That immortal line:

"I want that latrine so clean the Virgin Mary would be proud to take a shit in it,
" is in a class  by itself.
