    My grandmother got a letter from him in October when my grandpa passed, apparently they knew each other back when grandpa was in the Corps.

    I loved watching his show Mail Call.

    Two things about age is people tend to look at the elderly as if they are children and can't do anything right, The other point of view is older means experienced. Sgt. Army had an ora that clearly said "Experienced" that you out see in every character he played as well as his personal life. To other people like myself who grew up with a Vietnam Veteran as a father, we all wished our fathers was more like him.

    Don't call him, "Sir." He's a sergeant, he works for a living.;)

    He received an honorary promotion after leaving the Marines on medical disability.

    I'm challenged to come up with a better performance in any movie ever than his portrayal of Sergeant Hartman.
