This is a MUST HEAR Frontlines interview with Captain Dale Dye, the patriot who inspired Frontlines of Freedom, and who was behind the Oscar-winning performances in the movie Platoon and dozens of other Hollywood films including: Saving Private Ryan, Forrest Gump, Tropic Thunder, Born On The Fourth Of July, and HBO’s Band of Brothers and The Pacific. He has also acted in 70+ movies and his unmistakeably gritty Gunnery Sergeant voice can be heard on the Medal of Honor video game franchise. Captain Dye joins us for a half hour to share with us how he went from being a Devil Dog in the Vietnam War, to becoming a military advisor to some of Hollywood’s biggest films ever.
