I just loved watching that guy; often the picture he was in didn't do him the justice he deserved. Also I think every drill Sargent in the US, to some extent model themselves after him. It takes real talent to summon that kind of disgust and contempt for the people he acted at training, and even as the subject for it, you had to appreciate the skill; I know I did when I went though basic. The best compliment I ever got in my life came from a drill Sargent, when I performed a task and he told me, without a trace of a smile:
"Out-(G.D.)-standing! Out-F'n-standing! Now get the F out of here, pra-vit!" And I knew under the hat there was the beginning of a well-hidden grin, and I couldn't help but smile myself at the artistry of it all.
Anyway reminds me of the gunny, through and through.
