Listen: Commodore Marine Corps, Sergeant Major Of The Marine Corps, Marine Corps discussed on Dark Secret Place
"At his the dark secret place. Brian suits in here until eleven o'clock and a local dark secret place note arly, Ernie the gunny as you may know from full metal jacket, his legendary role as gunnery certain Hartman, the drill instructor which launched his film career that he went on. He was the my favorite scene is in the movie seven where he's the chief detective did voice work than he did mail. Call of course on the military channel. I think it was the history channel, but he did mail call, and then some other things, and he was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery just yesterday and the attendant at his graveside was the Commodore Marine Corps, and the sergeant major of the Marine Corps as well. As the twelfth sergeant major of the Marine Corps, the Marine Corps taking it very seriously to honor Landcare Palmdale zone arly army, and I. Tweeted out the Marine Corps tribute, which is a minute long video, which was very very nice, very cool, the Marine Corps. And and you understand it takes a lot for me to say that. So so salute very cool to the marines. Very cool is what I said. And so if you follow me, a dart secret place, you can see that. But it was a a great ceremony. And he was he was part owner of bravery brewing in Lancaster. And so he was toasted at graveside the the the way that he he probably would have wanted. So very very solemn and lovely ceremony very very respectful ceremony by the Marine Corps for one of their own a drill team or rather a firing not firing squad. A graveside salute from the Marine Corps barracks. At eight tonight. The oldest bring corps facility. In the world was provided. So neat little video by the Marine Corps that they put out on that a lot of people signed up because of him. Yeah. Just just watching the go. That's what makes the deal was that a lot of young marines at twenty nine palms and things before they deployed if they could make a pilgrimage up to Lancaster this. This is a very very common anecdote up there. They would come to bravery brewing and say our deploying in a week, or we're deploying in two days, we just want to come to the gun. He's place and have a beer and his partner. The Kohner would call him at home and say, hey, there's some rains that are deploying deaf ghanistan in two days. They wanna have a beer with you. And he would drop whatever he was doing and Kemba brewery and sit down and have a beer with these guys his his the uniform that he used in full metal jacket is on display, oh physically in there and the actual one for the movie, and so guys would take pictures with him and all that. And he was he was very reverential towards. The young men, especially the infantry guys that were going there early army was not a ground combat, and he was he was a air when he was a Marine Corps air wing supply guy. But he did work. He did a tour drill instructors. So when you're seeing him in that movie that ain't acting right? But he was he was hired as a technical adviser. He did so much better than the actor that they hired Kubrick said, right? You're in a different part. You ernie. You're gonna be gunnery sergeant Hartman. So so that that icon ick role that was his first screen role. Yeah. Well, he had he was in a brief part in the pockets now and some other things, but just sort of brief brief parts, but this this he had he had gone back to Washington was working in a logging mill. A mill paper mill when when someone called him and said, hey, this movies being made you need to come down and teach the guy had to be a drill instructor. So that's that's how he did that well a young man from Canada a couple of years ago decided that a really excellent life choice would be to drop everything that he hadn't Canada as a refugee from Somalia and go ahead and join ISIS in Syria somehow he survived until about a week ago while he's still surviving. Apparently he was captured. He's one of the final guys that we're we're holding out for mice and the defence forces with American leadership advisors sat him down and began quizzing him about who he is and his experience with ISIS. Here's here's a little bit of a play the some of the key parts next hour restock it about the end of the campaign. But this is this guy talking about how he. Got to ISIS from from Canada. Came from Canada. To syria. Twenty was."
