Childhood Inspirations From Television

I am very sad to find out the American actor, R. Lee Ermey died this year. I remember growing up as being inspired by his military roles and theme.

I remember watching the show Mail Call, a show where he would answer military related questions. I think R. Lee Ermey was one of many sources to influence my interest in the military and my desires to enlist into the U.S. Air Force. I was so obsessed in studying the military. I became someone who knew a lot about this topic more than the average person would know. People were often concerned about my obsession in the military and they tried stopping me from studying about it. I remember watching Mail Call faithfully though.

There was also someone else who inspired me and that was Steve Irwin, known as the Crocodile Hunter. He was one of few of my role models like R. Lee Ermey. I remember always wanting to be just like Steve Irwin. I was serious about it because I was pursuing a career to work with wild animals like him. My mother was always worried about my safety, especially after finding out how Steve Irwin met his end. I particularly was obsessed with Wolves and other wild canines. I even owned a dog that was part Wolf.

So, when finding out about R. Lee Ermey, I reflected on the people who inspired me the most in my life outside of the home. I think because of these two, their influences has became a part of my personality.
