He played a good role in "Seven" as well.

He'll be missed. You need a hard-as-nails character, he could do it. And his Mail Call show was also good-back when the History Channel did history. The Gunny may be gone, but his work lives. Semper Fi.

Most importantly, he played the fathers of Greg House and Briscoe County Jr.

Yeah, I was pretty bummed when they cancelled Mail Call. I didn't/still don't know why they did it. I imagine that it had really low overhead, and I got the impression that it pulled in pretty good ratings.

Always wanted to meet him, though he seems to be a bit on the acerbic side. My stepmonster met him at a Marine Corps Ball in Quantico in the 1970s, when he was just starting his celebrity run -- I'm not far off the mark!

They still have regular reruns on the Military Channel of Mail Call, and I watch them, even though it seems I've watched each episode at least five times.

Military Channel still exists?!?

I thought it died years ago, or was transformed into another, much lamer, channel. I'll have to look into this.

No, there's both: Military Channel and American Heroes Channel. On my cable, right next to each other. Those two, Science, Nat Geo, and Smithsonian comprise most of what I watch these days.

Hmm. Well, I spend a lot of time at my friend's house, and she cut the cord several years ago. Even when I'm home, I watch few shows on satellite: Astros baseball, MLB network, Food Network, The Expanse.
