R. Lee Ermey Endorses Tru-Spec Apparel

August 19, 2011  | 

Retired Marine Gunnery Sgt. R. Lee Ermey has become the official celebrity spokesperson for Tru-Spec's line of tactical apparel.

Tru-Spec products receiving the "Gunny Approved" endorsement include the 24-7 Series, Tactical Response Uniform and TRU XTREME, Classic BDUs, WeatherShield and H2O Proof Outerwear, XFIRE Fire Protective Clothing, and CORDURA brand Baselayer.

"'The Gunny's extensive personal experience with military and law enforcement equipment makes him an extremely credible, as well as a very recognizable addition to our marketing team," says Darrell Jacks, vice president of marketing. "R. Lee Ermey's background makes him a perfect match for Tru-Spec. 'The Gunny' also only endorses products he uses and believes in, so we are honored to have his enthusiastic personal endorsement of the Tru-Spec product line."

Ermey, who is popularly known as "The Gunny," served several tours during the Vietnam War and as a real-life Marine drill instructor. However, his greatest public acclaim has been earned as an accomplished character actor in motion pictures, most notably his Golden Globe-nominated iconic performance as Gunnery Sgt. Hartman, the tough-as-nails D.I. in Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" (1987).

Ermey starred in more than 100 episodes of The History Channel's "Mail Call" series, as well as History's "Lock N' Load."

Ermey also endorses Glock pistols and SOG Knives.

I knew I preferred Tru-Spec pants over 5-11's for a reason!! Kudos to The Gunny!! Besides the superior velcro-closure rear pocket flaps (to keep that wallet secure), I use the side slots for extra magazines. And Tru-Specs just plain fit better.
