  • The crazy D.I. from Full Metal Jacket answers your questions about military service, equipment, and history.

    This really has to be something you're into, otherwise you wil find host R. Lee Ermey quite abrasive. However, he tells it how it is, without any B.S. The show is entirely military, but covers various aspects of the military throughout different periods of history, up to and including the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The "Gunny" seems to have some sort of hatred for watermelons, as they are the most common targets for his weapon demonstrations. The show is great, but again I must reiterate, it is really meant for serious military and history buffs. (However, that doesn't mean that if you aren't into these things, that it isn't worth a look.)
