    Ermy was also known for the Movie The Siege of Firebase Gloria.


    One of his best lines in that Movie was.....there is no such thing as an atheist in a Combat Situation.

    Ermy from Siege at Firebase Gloria.


    A little Religious Communications might not be a bad idea at this stage of the game. Now myself I don't take any chances. I talk to Muhammad. Buddha. Mr Jesus H Christ and any other religious honchos I can come up with. There is no such thing as an atheist in a combat situation.


    Now we don't have a chaplain here. But I don't see that as any major setback. You can rest assured, you will not go into that bag until I have said a few appropriate words over you.

    He gave the best and most realistic portrayal of an old school Drill Sergeant I have ever seen.
