RIP Apone

"All right sweethearts, what are you waiting for, breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the Corps. A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal is a banquet. Every paycheck a fortune. Every formation a parade. I love the Corps!"- Gunnery Sergeant Apone

Al Matthew's, a Vietnam vet who has thirteen combat awards and decorations was the recipient of two purple hearts, and was the first black marine in the 1st Marine division to be meritoriously promoted to the rank of sergeant, not to mention an actor for several big time movies died two days ago.

His most well known role was probably one of my favorite movies, Aliens. His bad ass drill sergeant like ways and banter between Hudson (Bill Paxton)is still some of my favorite scenes in movies.

"You secure that shit Hudson!"

He was a hero in both movies and real life and it was a pleasure to just watch some of his work in film, I'm sure I'll be seeing Aliens again soon.

"The sarge is gone man! Hes gone!" -Hudson after Apone was taken in Aliens

Rest in peace my dude
