Garandomatic, you may be pleased to know that during the service, they showed a great fifteen minute collage of excerpts from R. Lee's numerous movies which concluded with the first five minutes of "Full Metal Jacket" uncensored! The Pastor then stepped forward with a smile and said something like, "I believe we've just heard words not ever spoken here before! The congregation let out a warm chuckle. And you know Gunny was chuckling as well...

 

Here's a few more photos, including the hearse with USMC/EGA logo and three different 9/11 memorial tribute escort cars dedicated to World Trade Center, Pentagon and Airline Flight Victims. Not sure of the accuracy of this information, but I was told actor Kevyn Howard (AKA "Rafterman" in "Full Metal Jacket") provided the escort Cameros, complete with light bars.

Today, November 10, 2018, as a tribute to the memories and honorable service of R. Lee Ermey on this 243rd birthday of the United States Marine Corps, the City of Palmdale, California, formally renamed Avenue N to "R. Lee Ermey Avenue." In a simple but eloquent and heartfelt ceremony near USAF Plant 42, approximately 600 local citizens, politicians, current and past military personnel, well-wisher's and Gunny's Family shared some time and stories about Gunny's illustrious past before unveiling the new street sign and dedicating the event...
