Mail Call: Season 01 ()

R. Lee Ermey, the raspy-voiced former Marine Corps Staff Sergeant who rose to movie fame for his hard-nosed "D.I." roles in such films as The Boys in Company C and Full Metal Jacket, answers questions from civilians on a variety of war- and military-related topics in Season One of the History Channel documentary series Mail Call. In the debut episode, Ermey explains how to steer a Stuart tank, discusses the shooting capacity of a Gatling Gun, and the inherent strength of a Samurai sword. In subsequent installments, Ermey discourses on knightly armor, land mines, crossbows, flak vests, the "night vision" attachments on modern weaponry, the LCAC (air-cushion hovercraft), gas masks, Indian arrows, Army "C" rations, Revolutionary War muskets, the earliest rocket weapons, the ancient Roman pilum, the doggie heroes of the K-9 corps, and the origin of the word "Jeep." The final episode of the season finds Ermey describing possible military gear of the future, the effectiveness of Marine camouflage, and the Stryker, the latest in Army vehicles. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis
