Gunny’s heading to Florida but not for Spring Break. There’s some hot and heavy ordnance down there with his name on it and he’s about to make some noise!
- The ultimate, hands-on survey of military technology and tactics.
- Hosted by real-life “Gunny” R. Lee Ermey (Full Metal Jacket).
- 105 mm cannon, Hell Week, terrorist assault rifles: that’s what Gunny calls a vacation!
Wake Up, Maggots! With his in-your-face style and unlimited arsenal of military knowledge, retired Marine Sergeant, drill instructor, Vietnam veteran, and actor R. Lee Ermey (Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket) answers your civilian questions in the hit series MAIL CALL. If R. Lee doesn’t know the answer, he recruits the top military and civilian experts to fill in the gaps, and he never passes up an opportunity to get his hands dirty in a live-fire exercise.
Call it the hometown of the Air Force Commandos: Hurlburt Field, FLA. Gunny heads to the sunny shores to take an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of the facility where the most sophisticated warriors in America’s struggle against terrorism receive critical training. From every branch of the military and law enforcement, the most advanced anti-terrorist forces earn their pedigree at Hurlburt Field.
On this tour, Gunny gets a small taste of his own medicine as he samples “Hell Week” and – with a little more enthusiasm – pops off a couple 105 mm rounds from the devastating AC-130’s cannon. He also gets inside the terrorist mind by learning how to detect car bombs and explosives, and fires some of the weapons popular among the enemy.
For R. Lee, the next best thing to drawing a bead on a terrorist himself is learning how expertly the global war on terror is being handled on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Join him in this fascinating tour of one of the most elite training facilities in the world.
