He later had many other roles, such as Briscoe County Sr. in the Bruce Campbell cult TV SciFi Western series Briscoe County Jr. He also hosted two History Channel nonfiction shows, Mail Call and Lock and Load.

A USMC Staff Sgt., after his service he received an honorary promotion to Gunnery Sgt. in recognition of his many USO type appearances for our servicemen overseas.

Oh man...I hadn't heard. Thanks for posting.

Loved his movies but my all time favorite was one of his shows he had a garden where he grew watermelons and stuff that he called "the enemy". He'd use them for target practice. Thought that was funny.
