Episode Summary

EDIT
MP5; Three Types of Automatic Weapons; Marine Corps Paratroopers of World War II; Photograph of the Flag Raisers at Iwo Jima
AIRED:
R. Lee Ermey, who played the sergeant in Full Metal Jacket, applies his gruff sense of humor in this half-hour series that answers viewers' mail about what the armed forces were, and really are, like! In this episode, he demonstrates the firepower of the MP5; then gives the often-overlooked Marine Corps paratroopers of WWII their due; and relates the story behind the photo of the Iwo Jima flag-raisers. Then, fighter pilots demonstrate the new state-of-the-art hands-free helmet system.moreless
