Mass Comm l, ll –

From Wikipedia — Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket”:

Full Metal Jacket is a 1987 war film by Stanley Kubrick, based on the novel The Short-Timers by Gustav Hasford. The title refers to the full metal jacket bullet type of ammunition used by infantry riflemen. The film follows a squad of U.S. Marines through their United States Marine Corps Recruit Training and the experiences of two of them in the Tet Offensive (1968) during the Vietnam War.
