There was a time when that kind of exchange could have and probably did happen. I was going through a special program in the Navy and I can recall the one black kid in the program was called out of formation and told to wear a bandana to cover his teeth so he “wouldn’t give away our position at night”. Hilarious and no one was discharged, court martialed or booted out of the service.

I’m afraid that, as a non-TV-watcher, I’m completely out of what sounds like a very entertaining loop.

Don't worry, you're not alone; I and (I'm sure) scores of other FReepers haven't seen the commercial being discussed, either.

The title is valid because it was a Marine Commander(sic) who promoted him.

The title is honorary and has no bearing on Ermey's monthly disability check. It has as much significance as Jones' "promotion" of Gomer Pyle to Lance Corporal.

This summer R. Lee Ermy was signing autographs at a local store and was supposed to do so for three hours. The crowd was large and he stayed FIVE hours, talked to everyone, signed multiple autographs for every one, and was nice as could be. When my 17 year old said he wanted to be a medic in the marine Corps, Mr. Ermy explained that the USMC uses Navy medics but told my son how he could ask for FMF (Fleet Marine Forces) duty after getting out of Navy medic schools. And he explained that medics tend to go to locations where the enemy already know the range and vector.

Having been raised in Southern California, I have run into to many celebs who where not worth a damn. Gunny Ermy impressed me as a genuine nice guy and his acting!

Never did understand that one completely.

The DI knows that with Obama we are already living in “Mamby Pamby” land.

Is it unusual for a Marine to retire a SSGT (E-6) after 20 years of service? I know it would be in the army.

I love this guy. His good example in character is multiplied by the fact he is fun at the same time.

Not usuak anymore—if a SNCO isn’t promoted wuthin a certain time period he is not allowed to ship over (reenlist).

Gotta be competitive—up or out I believe they call it.

B4 WWII it was common for privates even to retire with 20 or ecven 30 years service—corporals and buck sergeants even more common.

Not yer grand daddy’s America anymore—more like 0’pinhead’s we the folks now.

Thanks Gunny. I just thought it might be unusual for a former Marine DI to retire an E-6.
