Ermey's long-time manager Bill Rogin shared the sad news on Twitter.
Ronald Lee Ermey served as a marine for eleven years. He was stationed in Okinawa, Japan for one year until 1968, when he was moved to Vietnam and spent 14 months in country. He served as a technical adviser in Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 Vietnam Conflict epic, "Apocalypse Now", by which he additionally had a small function as a helicopter pilot.
Ermey also played roles in Mississippi Burning, Se7en, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Like with many people, he first caught my attention as the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket - I'd be quoting lines of his for many, many years.
In a post on Facebook - since made inaccessible - his manager Bill Rogin said: "It is extremely hard to truly quantify all of the great things this man has selflessly done for, and on behalf of, our many men and women in uniform".
Ermey was best known for his role in "Full Metal Jacket". Kubrick said at the time that 50 percent of the insulting dialogues were all Ermey's improvisation. It's no stretch at all for me to say Hoyt is more terrifying than the other characters in the film, including Leatherface.

As well as gracing the big screen, the deceased actor also had TV roles, seeing him do the voice-over for the warden in Spongebob SquarePants and John House in House.
In addition to a long list of contributions to theatrical movies, Ermey also hosted two popular television shows on The History Channel "Mail Call" and "Lock n' Load", along with "Gunny Time" on the Outdoor Channel.
