Full Metal Jacket Helmet: Peace Be With You!
Full Metal Jacket Helmet:

Peace and a machine-gun! That is American…the “duality of man” as Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 Movie “Full Metal Jacket” implies, rather napalm-like! In your face and real, the first segment is unbelievably realistic to any of us old time Marine Corps Veterans! Stanley Kubrick NAILED IT in the boot camp portion!

The movie is about a pragmatic U.S. Marine that observes the dehumanizing effects the U.S.-Vietnam War has on his fellow recruits from their brutal Marine Corps Boot Camp Training to the bloody street fighting in Hue.

This movie is a two-segmented look at the effect of the military mindset and war itself on Vietnam-Era-MARINES.

Ronald Lee Ermey (born March 24, 1944) is an American actor, best known for his role as the austere Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He is a retired U.S. Marine and an honorary Gunnery Sergeant; during his tenure in the U.S. Marine Corps, he served as a drill instructor. This is why Full Metal Jacket is so historically correct on the Boot Camp segment…because that IS what Marine Boot Camp is really like!

Ermey has often been typecast for the roles of authority figures, such as Mayor Tilman in the film Mississippi BurningBill Bowerman in Prefontaine,Sheriff Hoyt in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, Jimmy Lee Farnsworth in Fletch Lives, Police Captain in Sevenplastic army men leaderSarge in the Toy Story films, and the Warden in SpongeBob SquarePants.

He has hosted two programs on the History ChannelMail Call, in which he answered viewers’ questions about various militaria both modern and historic; and Lock N’ Load with R. Lee Ermey, which focused on the development of different types of weapons. More info on R. Lee Ermey HeRe!

Screech….”Get the F#ck on my beloved Marine Corps Footsteps maggots!” Soon after fresh recruits here this phrase, in the middle of the night, recruits get their first Marine Corps Haircut! If you have any moles, they take them right off for ya! Ouch! I enjoyed watching the idiots with “mullets” and “rat-tails” the most, hey, what can I say, it was the early 1990s! Some of them actually cried! They learned quick not to cry after that!

Joker almost met his maker before he even went to Vietnam! Marine Corps Boot Camp lasts 3.5 months. The longest Boot Camp of all services. The Army is 2 months.

After Marines got out of Boot Camp, during my time, we went to another 4+ weeks of Marine Combat Training. Every Marine is a basic rifleman first! The Marine Corps is the smallest, most elite fighting force in the world! That’s why Marines have always been despised by the Army. Basic Rifleman Marines are more elite than the Army Airbourne and all other Army special forces. This is simple fact.

The Marine Corps is the only branch in the United States that CAN be sent to battle WITHOUT AN ACT OF CONGRESS! That’s because Marines are all Killers. That is what Marines do. This is why you don’t see fat Marines. If you drive onto any Army base, you will see fat Army personel. Marines are held to much higher standards, in every facet of the Marines training and lives! Discipline is the key to any Marine and every Marine has Discipline. Individuals that aren’t disciplined, are not allowed in our beloved Corps!

The deep-lines are contusions that never heal. Deeper and Deeper the lines expand…vast, splattered with splinters of gray. Feeling like bruised ribs…pain with every breath, keeps me alive, the pain does! The sharp, twisting hopelessness is…

ME!

I store the happy memories in the fine, delicate lines, the lines most vain and visible, still somewhat… youthful… I store memories of human empathy, I once had…superficial lines to hide the real…

ME!

The deep lines cause a divine, unique agony, drilling into my optic nerves, bilaterally, angiogenesis grows arteries, which, feed the malevolent tumors that are germinating in my frontal lobes…The grotesque growths are always famished…always need more, of…

ME!

Pain, reminds me I live… reminds me I have a cancer deep within…Lines grow deeper…I can’t hide myself much longer. Fear fills in the spaces, left empty by the ravenous parasites, feasting on my life support system…feasting on my CPU! The exquisite ache, once agony, is now welcomed. The twitching, exposed muscle causes neurons to fire…shooting neurotransmitters relay distress, to my organic microprocessor. The human instinct to live will always trump….

Me!

My exterior has weathered a long journey.
A journey full of unexpected pleasure and pain.
Yet! My gears still turn inside… just fine.

The city has a pulse. A heart beats within.
Bump…bum-bum…Bump…Bump…B…B….Bum…. The city’s Cardiac Center, is in a dangerous rhythm. Political greed, coupled with organized crime, thicken the heart’s walls…arteries become clogged with pharmaceutical waste and fast food fodder.

Meet Gotham’s newest, unlicensed Heart Surgeon: “I came to Gotham, searching for darkness.” “I found it.”
“All along, the darkness was always there, feeding my thought process, triggering the violence…Freeing Bane!”
I have accepted my fate…my mission. I am Destined…to… Destroy Hope!

Startled, screaming was my first response. I screamed as if I were being attacked by a psychotic stranger! My ears ring from the damage…tinnitus is what the doctor said… I am insane now. Am I insane if I know I am insane? Maybe I am just dreaming? That’s it…this must be a dream.
Dreaming…BUT…The voice was back…whispering “do it”, “do it”, “you are Jesus and I am God!” the voice kept repeating…echoing…in my bony cranium…FOREVER! Was it the holy spirit?
I’ve gotta go…the cameras are recording us! Shhhhh.

Skin Baby sleeps with one eye open, all the time.
Skin Baby is my inner child. Planes of existence… where, do I reside? I can’t remember, where my HOME is.                Neither here nor there, in between… Purgatory?     Suspended animation?
Reality? Wherever I reside, I am protected from him…but I can’t stop sleeping…with one eye wide shut and, one eye closed but open, to a world of corruption and…The Evil…        That MEN do!
