On Friday, longtime Knife Rights Supporter R. Lee “The Gunny” Ermey was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. This was the final step in his journey since his passing back in April of last year. The Gunny was an incredible human being, one of the warmest and nicest gentlemen you’d ever want to meet. I will cherish having known and worked with him. He was a true patriot and a staunch Knife Rights supporter who said of this organization, “I whole-heartedly endorse the work of Knife Rights and support their mission! I detest the fact that such an organization is even necessary in the United States of America.”

He frequently mentioned Knife Rights in his writings and talks. He was steadfast in his support. His support also included multiple years of autographed donations to our Ultimate Steel™ Spectacular fundraisers (courtesy of KA-BAR and Glock). Last year’s is shown below. (Brady Miller photo.

He is sorely missed. Semper Fi, Gunny. Rest in Peace.
