Gunny Garipy was my Drill Instructor at Parris Island. He definatly was a hard charger and motivator. I had a chance to see him in the fleet and he was still the motivated person i knew. I wished i could have had a chance to talk to him again but i know he is smiling down on Marines. RIP Drill Instructor Sgt Garipy
