Marine Corps Ball 2004. Probably the best I ever attended be cause of Gunny. Damn happy I wasn't on the ceremonial guard detail for this one as the man in the pic on the right, R. Lee Ermey, had the entire place laughing and having a damn good time!
Afterwards, he stood in the back and took pictures with every person who wanted one...and of course, every one did! The man had so many beers lined up on the table behind him he could have stayed looped for a week!
When I got to see him I told him I wanted to see his warface. He looked at me, smirked, and said he thinks we could do that.
Rest In Peace Gunny.
