The famous hollywood actor R.L. Ermey died of pneumonia. He was loved for his several voice overs and an incredible role in the Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket.
Ronald Lee Ermey joined the United States Marine Corps at 17 and served in aviation support before becoming a drill instructor. He was stationed in San Diego and Okinawa during his military career, which included 14 months in country during the Vietnam War. He was medically discharged in 1972 as staff sergeant but in 2002 he was granted an honorary promotion to gunnery sergeant. Ermey became the first retiree in the history of the Marines to be promoted.
He served as a technical adviser in Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 Vietnam War epic, "Apocalypse Now," in which he also had a small role as a helicopter pilot. But Ermey didn't get his big break until eight years later, in Kubrick's own take on Vietnam. He was originally supposed to be a technical adviser, but Kubrick offered him the role of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman after seeing a demo tape of Ermey railing at extras while tennis balls flew at him.
