    The last few days while getting my 3 miles on the treadmill the History Channel has been running Mail Call. I like old Lee Ermey and that show has always been one of my favorites.

    So how many of you like Mail Call?
    Sound Off, Yeah!

    I love that show and the gunny. He was great just bein himself in full metal jacket. Marine Corps boot camp was tough(tougher than the movie portrayed), and I had a tough senior drill instructor, but shudder at the thought of having " the gunny" as a d.i.!

    Great show! Where in the world does he get the items that he discusses on his shows. That, and the access that he gets to dam near everything is incredible.

    Another of his famous movie lines was in Mississippi Burnin. He said to Willam Dafoe, "You ain't in america son, You in Mississippi"
