R. Lee Ermey, Golden Globe Nominee for 'Full Metal Jacket,' Dies at 74





The news was announced via his official Twitter account, by his longtime manager.

R. Lee Ermey, a Golden Globe-nominated actor best known for his role as Gunnery Sgt. Hartman in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, has died.

Ermey, whose nickname was "The Gunny," died Sunday morning from complications of pneumonia. He was 74.

Ermey not only played a Marine in the movies, but he also was one in real life, having been a U.S. Marine Corps staff sergeant and an honorary gunnery sergeant. He also served as a drill instructor for the Marines. Ermey served 14 months in Vietnam and completed two tours in Okinawa, Japan.


Semper Fi, Gunny. Godspeed.

Memorandum for the Marine Executive Association Membership
MEA President, John Bridges
Several months ago, the Marine Executive Association (MEA) began the process to vote for the 2018 / 2019 Officers and Board of Directors.  During the coordination of this process, we were unable to complete the vote associated with changes amongst existing Officer’s, which required seeking  candidates in the Quantico DC area that could regularly meet to review and monitor the association’s progress and future sustainability. 
In addition, the 2017 / 2018 Chairman was transferred necessitating assumption of the Chair duty by the President per article IX of the MEA By-Laws.
Accordingly, I have asked the MEA Executive Director to initiate the process to seek candidates for the Vice President and Treasurer positions, announce to the members the slate of candidates and to commence the Vote.

Semper Fi,

John H. Bridges III

President and Acting Chairman, Marine Executive Association
