    Default R. Lee Ermey: Coolest Guy Ever

    The story speaks for itself:

    "Full Metal Jacket" star finds bag of cash at Fort Missoula
    Posted on April 8
    By KIM BRIGGEMAN of the Missoulian

    When Don Luke saw a tall former Marine Corps drill instructor walk into the Wells Fargo Bank on Russell Street on Monday, a light clicked on.

    “He looked very familiar,” Luke said. “I watch the History Channel a ton.”

    Sure enough, it was R. Lee Ermey, star of the network's “Mail Call,” with a line of movie credits that stretches back to the 1970s.

    Ermey, in Missoula this week to shoot a segment for his upcoming series “Locked and Loaded,” had been driving with crew member Harlan Glenn to a Fort Missoula museum when he spotted something black lying on the blacktop.

    On closer examination, it turned out to be a bank deposit bag. Ermey stopped the car and picked it up.

    “We look in there and - Lord have mercy,” he said.

    The bag contained a pile of dough: cash and checks that looked like they were meant for deposit in an American Indian fund of some sort.

    “Just on one deposit slip alone was, like, $3,700, and another one for $2,800,” Glenn said. “There was easily $8,000 in cash, and the rest in checks.”

    Ermey said his first thought was: “Some poor guy, right now, is probably getting fired, probably having the worst day of his life.

    “So what we did was we went right down to the Wells Fargo bank and deposited it for him.”

    “He said, You need to call these people so they can stop having a heart attack,' ” Glenn said.

    Luke, Wells Fargo's business expert, said he didn't know how much the deposit bag held, or even who at the bank processed the deposit.

    But he did appreciate meeting The Gunny.

    “We weren't sure if it wasn't �Candid Camera,' ” he said.

    He is a good dude.
    He lives nearby and rides his Harley in a lot of charity events locally.
    I've met him on several occasions and he's always very friendly.

    It is not an understatement to say that if a person ate a bowl of alphabet soup, they would shit better lyrics. -lmr5150 on Up For Breakfast

    Give him the "secret devil sign", stick out your tongue and hiss like a demon while bellowing out THE DARKNESS WILL ENVELOPE THY SOUL AND FEAST OF THY FLESH, INFIDEL!!!!! Then gouge a pentagram in your forehead with a nail file. -LowLifeFlatHeadScum

    A recent study shows 92% of the teenage population likes rap music. If you are part of the 8% who listen to real music, put this as your sig.
