For your trivial amusement here are a list of creators cum marines.
Comedian Don Adams (Maxwell Smart in Get Smart) was a US Marine. Drill instructor.
Comedian Rob Riggle is a real life Marine, which was incorporated into his on-camera persona on "The Daily Show" as far as being their defacto military correspondent. He later played a character on "Gary Unmarried" who's also a Marine.
Comedian Drew Carey was in the United States Marines. You can tell this instantly from his haircut and the ugly "birth control glasses" (government-issue eyeglasses) he wears.
Ronald Lee Ermey, who played GySgt Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, is a retired U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sergeant, who was given an honorary promotion to Gunnery Sergeant, the only promotion of its kind in the history of the USMC.
