History

Full Metal Jacket

Sergeant Hartman introduced himself to his recruits starting with Private Brown. He told him that he will be Private Snowball from now on and asked him if he liked that name. He told him yes, but Hartman told him that they don't serve fried chicken and watermelon on a regular basis. Private Joker said "Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?", which made Hartman come over to the other row of privates wondering who stated it. He grabbed Private Cowboy slightly and told him he looks like a worm. Joker then tells him that he said it. Hartman came over to him and punched im in the stomach by giving him an uppercut punch. He heard Joker was a "killer", so Hartman told him to give out his war cry. He went back over to Cowboy and insulted him about being from Texas and later to Leonard Lawrence insulting him even more for being fat and that he hates the name Lawrence. He called him Gomer Pyle from now on, and Private Pyle gave him an obnoxious grin. Hartman gave him three seconds to stop grinning like that or he will threaten him. Gomer Pyle said that he couldn't help grinning like he was, however Hartman told him to get on his knees. Hartman then choked him, but Pyle got up again.
