VetX Gunny Petition

It has been 4 years since The Gunny, R. Lee Ermey has passed away. Yet his many accomplishments as an actor have not been properly recognized. The Gunny had 128 credits as an actor, including Toy Story, Mississippi Burning, Se7en, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Full Metal Jacket. There is no doubt that he should be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Operation Shooting Star is working to make that happen.

With the permission of the Ermey family, Vet X will be filing an application with the Hollywood, CA Chamber of Commerce to award The Gunny a much deserved and well overdue Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

You can help Operation Shooting Star by signing this petition and asking others to sign it too. Please share with all your friends. Our goal is to get at least 100,000 signatures.
