R. Lee Ermey quotes :
It's my firm conviction that when Uncle Sam calls, by God we go, and we do the best that we can.R. Lee Ermey
Even though I disagree with many of the changes, when I see the privates graduate at the end of the day, when they walk off that drill field at the end of the ceremony, they are still fine privates outstanding, well motivated privates.R. Lee Ermey
We had times in '66 and '67 when we would pick up a platoon of privates out of the receiving barracks the week before we even graduated the platoon that we were on!R. Lee Ermey
I disagree with a lot of those changes, however at the end of the day - I go down to recruit graduation at least once or twice a year.R. Lee Ermey
